relationship between humans and nature. Indeed, the volume ends with sobering data about climate change and its impact on the poles, rendering the previous breathtaking photographs as evidence of the beauty the world stands to lose if climate change is left unchecked. (Publishers Weekly)
Absolutely stunning.... Well worthy of purchase, this spectacular book is the perfect companion to the television series and is guaranteed to have an impact on the reader. It not only celebrates the wonder of the poles and their inhabitants, but Frozen Planet: A World Beyond Imagination also imparts an important message about the fragility of the environment and the responsibility of humans to act as stewards for our planet.

A beautiful and stunning portrait of the planet's polar regions. (Oceans)
This is a keeper to delve into again and again, with or without the televised series. (Sandy Bauers Philadelphia Inquirer 2012-05-19)
This portrait of our polar region will surprise and amaze. Frozen Planet offers extraordinary views of frozen landscapes and animal behavior impossible to see on dry land. The full-page images are breathtaking, and the layout depicts the vastness of this landscape of ice. The team also takes us on a voyage below the ice, to the heart of the glaciers and volcanic caves of crystalline ice.... Frozen Planet is a book of immense beauty and an inexhaustible source of information. One cannot remain insensitive to the impact of humanity on this majestic landscape. (Ginette Lapointe Photo News 2012-06-01)
The text that accompanies the truly magnificent photographs is informative and factual. The undoubted stars of the book are the photographs of the landscape and its inhabitants, which are unworldly for a resident of a temperate region of the earth. (Clarence J.

It contains information on both the northern and southern polar regions. There is an extensive forward by David Attenborough, general information on the polar areas, chapters on spring, summer, autumn and winter, the thinning ice and the story of filming this BBC production.
We read and see a narrative about the ice, the sea, the plants and the living creatures that survive in this cold world. There is almost as much text as there are photographs which are all well labeled. Maps of the Artic and Antarctic areas are included as well as an index.
This is a book that those who are fascinated by these Polar Regions would enjoy, as well as those who appreciate photography and wildlife and wilderness expanses.
We put this book on our coffee table and visitors waste no time in picking it up to browse.
Great price on an excellent book.
