Baker & Taylor Follows a journey by dogsled, snowmobile, and other means from Greenland to Siberia and the North Pole, highlighting the methods that native peoples and wildlife use to survive in the harsh climate.
Oxford University Press Journey into the Arctic takes us across an environment which is one of the harshest, yet most beautiful on Earth. Setting off from Greenland, we travel by sled and snowmobile, meeting along the way the peoples and animals of the ice kingdom - seals, polar bears, arctic foxes and musk oxen. We learn how an igloo is constructed, and what life is like in an Inuit village. For the final push to the North Pole, we board a Russian icebreaker, shivering as the seamen take a dip in the icy sea!
