4.0 von 5 Sternen Never knew a whole lot about this part of the world 23. März 2008
Von Mark Pietroski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
But now do---this is an overview of the islands of the Arctic Ocean, which includes Greenland, Svalbard (Norwegian Territory), the Russian Islands, and the Canadian Arctic Archipelgo. As most will probably know, Greenland, the largest Island in the world is a world of its own, but who's heard of Baffin Island, as large as Texas; Svalbard, where ther's an international effort underway to assemble a seed and tissue bank for the possible salvation of species that may be hard pressed to survive the probable effects of global warming.
But mostly I enjoyed getting a better look at places way, way off the beaten track.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Islands of the Arctic 16. August 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
WOW! This is the only book I've ever put on my coffee table. It is absolutely beautiful and so well written that anyone can quickly read and learn about the arctic. The numerous photos are worthy of framing and they beautifully depict the many facets of ice and snow. Excellent as a learning book for students and travellers alike. I highly recommend this book as a gift to anyone with an interest in geography, geology, photography, or even just the beauty of nature. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great informative book on the islands in the Arctic region! 27. September 2003
Von Anthony Chiu - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Awesome volume on the Arctic. This book is very informative to the Arctic fan. Everything you wondered about the islands of the Arctic, you will find here (from the Canadian Arctic archipelago, through Greenland and the Svalbard islands of Norway, to the eastern Siberian arctic islands). And along with much interesting texts, this book is also filled with superb and colourful photographs. Many of them, breathtaking. You will find numerous photos of the beautiful landscapes from the air, human settlements, fauna & flora, to even geology and glacier formations, etc. You will understand the geography and geology of the islands, the varied climate in this vast region, the history about exploration, life at this high latitude - both humans & nature, and much more. This is truly a great collection! Well worth the money.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful book of the Arctic islands 3. März 2009
Von Michael A. Duvernois - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
There's not a lot on the Russian islands, but plenty of general information, gorgeous photography, and coverage of Ellesmore through Franz Josef. Some of the visits, photos, and information date back to the 1970s and 1980s, but change is relatively slow up north. Save for the climate change which features prominently in the book, but is not the primary theme.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful Ocean 3. Dezember 2013
Von Great Pyr - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Beautiful Photography of an area of this planet that few of us will visit. Adequate Maps, a personal complaint I often have of books of this type was a big plus. The text provide good understanding of what you are looking at in my opinion. The text runs from Geology to flora & Fauna as well locals living there and tourist visitors. I recommend this book highly to anyone interested in the Arctic Ocean. I finished it with more knowledge about the area and an enjoyable visual experience.
