Arctic Dreams by Barry LopezRead about another entry on the list.
A wondrous investigation into the Arctic and its place in our imagination, as well as an exploration of landscape, culture, science, hunting, morality, and value. There is a moment in this book when Lopez feels compelled to bow to arctic ground-nesting birds with deep humility and reverence for their tenacity. It always reduces me to tears.
Arctic Dreams is among Caspar Henderson's top ten natural histories.
