The harsh beauty and exotic life forms of the polar regions appeal to our sense of wonder, and while we may think of them as similiar, the Arctic and Antarctic are as similar as Kansas and Kenya. Galen Rowell takes us on an exhilerating visual journey using the parallel visions of his camera to reveal the fascinating differences and unexpected likeness between the polar regions. Pairs of images are presented on opposite pages with extended captions. A second section of polar short stories features the kindred diversity of particular places, peoples, and species. A final section of essays about the photographs gives the story behind the subject and the making of each image.
