Format: Paperback
This spectacular collection of Aurora Borealis photographs is absolutely breathtaking. Daryl Pederson and Calvin Hall have captured the essence of the mysterious wonders of the Northern Lights with their combined abilities. Having lived in Alaska we have long admired the rare talents of Mr Pederson. My husband and I own many of his prints and continue to enjoy them daily. We most definately will order some from this offering. This book is a must for everyone who appreciates the visual splenders displayed by the Aurora Borealis or just loves to look at georgeous photography.

This one was given to me as a gift by an Alaskan friend, and I shall cherish it. It is an absolutely awesome collection of photographs of the Northern Lights, with accompanying text describing the legends, myths and theories surrounding the phenomenon.

The typography and layout are first-class, and the whole project is an absolutely flawless collection of photographs and prose relating to the Aurora Borealis.

What an exquisite gift, Ted!

The photographs are phenomenal in this book and makes me want to rush up to Alaska to see the Northern Lights in person. Of course reading some of the legends and historical accounts is extremely interesting but the real reason I was interested in this book was the mention of Northwest Airlines Flight 4422. This plane crashed on Mount Sanford on March 12, 1948 killing 30 men and it is believed to be the only case of a plane crash being blamed for the pilots being blinded by the Aurora Borealis. I'm intrigued with this and have followed this crash extensively. But regardless, the photos are worth everything!!!!

I saw this book in a museum book store for about $20 but bought it here for less than $5 with shipping. This is not just a book of pretty pictures. The text, although a little more brief than I had hoped, is decent to get some science and history as well. Not quite large enough to be considered a coffee table book.

The photos in this book are beautiful! I just wish it came in hard cover binding.

I appreciate the variety of samples in this book. Others I've seen have less variety.

I purchased the Northern Lights book for my Mom and she loved it. The pictures take you to a place you can not believe its really in this world.

Having recently been to Alaska to witness the Aurora I wanted a book that duplicated in photos what I had seen in person. This book did the best job of any I've seen.

I recommend it for those who are as fascinated with the Northern Lights as I am
