Description


Arctic Changes: Past to Present in the Far North is an educational and entertaining book that persuades readers to think about and take seriously the changes occurring in the Arctic.

This is a unique book because it combines descriptions of what the Arctic was like in the past and its historical explorations, with the enormous changes that have happened and that are continuing to unfold. Major developments that scientists and indigenous peoples are currently trying to understand and deal with are described. The focus is on the changes - old to new conditions - in the far north.

The book entertains with stories about Arctic heroes and animal rescues. Readers of this book will gain an understanding of how warming is changing the lives of people, animals, and birds living in the Arctic.

Prospective readers will be people who are interested in science and nature. They include young adults interested in science and climate change, as well as baby boomers who grew up with an image of Arctic regions. People are aware that global warming has a direct effect on their lives. The Arctic, which helps to keep the rest of the earth cool and has major impacts on oceanic and atmospheric circulations, is warming at more than twice the rate of the rest of the world.

The book is 236 pages and 77 figures.
