Barry Lopez:
Arctic Dreams: Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 1860465838

[SR: 36845], Paperback, [EAN: 9781860465833], Vintage, Vintage, Book, [PU: Vintage], 1999-01-07, Vintage, A portrait of the Arctic that celebrates the landscape, wildlife and people of the vast and mysterious region. Above all, it is a story of light - solar and lunar rings, halos and coronas, the aurora borealis, and the distant mountain that is actually a looming and convincing mirage., The European picture of the Arctic is usually of snow and ice: the inhospitability of the terrain and the frigid wastes of the tundra contribute to our incapacity to imagine ordinary life there. In this magisterial book Barry Lopez draws on this hazy understanding of the far north to provide a compelling account of the land and its hold upon the psyche. It is a book which could be compared to Chatwin's The Songlines for its combination of travelogue and poetic vision. Yet the beauty of the prose and the thought-provoking evocations of modern culture's shifting relationship with the environment are in a league of their own. Here are sparkling descriptions of the lives of caribou, muskoxen, polar bears and narwhals, and extraordinarily moving passages which meditate on the nature of our relationship with the world, the inter-dependence of ideas, desire and science and the possibility of dignity and compassion in the contemporary world. It is a measure of the respect which Lopez has for his subject that his book exemplifies the supreme importance which he ascribes to the ethics of respect in the face of all existential paradox: "There are simply no answers to some of the great pressing questions. You continue to live them out, making your life a worthy expression of a leaning into the light". --Toby Green, 922118, Habitats, 277972, Animal Sciences, 277912, Biological Sciences, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278399, Wild Animals, 278400, Aquatic Creatures, 922426, Birds, 922098, Butterflies, 922118, By Habitat, 278407, Insects & Spiders, 922432, Mammals, 922430, Reptiles & Amphibians, 278392, Nature, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 279915, Travel Writing, 83, Travel & Holiday, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

Barry Lopez:
Arctic Dreams - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 1860465838

Paperback, [EAN: 9781860465833], Harvill Pr, Harvill Pr, Book, [PU: Harvill Pr], Harvill Pr, Based on 15 extended trips to the Canadian far north over a five-year period, Arctic Dreams celebrates the mysteries of what documentarians fondly call "last frontiers." Such places are everywhere in danger of destruction in the interest of ever-elusive economic progress, but Lopez writes no jeremiads. Instead, he aims to foster a kind of learned understanding of wild places, in this case the vast, scarcely knowable northern landscape. Writing of the natural history of the Arctic and its inhabitants--narwhals, polar bears, beluga whales, musk oxen, and caribou among them--Lopez draws powerful lessons from the land and imparts them assuredly and gracefully. Arctic Dreams deservedly won a National Book Award in 1986 when it was first published., 956280, Science & Math, 956856, Agricultural Sciences, 957364, Archaeology, 956838, Astronomy, 956804, Behavioural Sciences, 956812, Biological Sciences, 956282, Chemistry, 956306, Earth Sciences, 956352, Education, 950604, Environment, 3046531, Essays & Commentary, 956362, Evolution, 956376, Experiments, Instruments & Measurement, 956400, History & Philosophy, 956414, Mathematics, 956868, Medicine, 956536, Nature & Ecology, 956718, Physics, 956766, Reference, 956788, Technology, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books
