Lured form a career in medicine by the magic of the North nearly 20 years ago, Dr. Wayne Lynch returns every year to the arctic--the temptress that altered the course of his life. A world-acclaimed author and wildlife photographer, Lynch has compiled a book unlike any other on this distant region.

In A is for Arctic, he presents an intimate and entertaining look at the charismatic creatures that flourish in this wild polar world. Experience the sights and sounds of seabird cliffs teeming with screaming kittiwakes and colorful auks, and marvel at the majesty of such northern mammals as the polar bear, fox, walrus, seal and whale. They have all adapted to a landscape still touched by the timeless flow of glaciers. Wonderfully illustrated with photographs that capture the delicate and complex nature of this region, A is for Arctic will change forever the way you view the North.
