Description
We Are the Arctic will bring you into the remote, life-sustaining coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The Refuge is a sacred place for a centuries-old culture, and a powerful symbol of enduring serenity and peace. It is the birthing ground for caribou and polar bears. Adventurers seeking a once-in-a-lifetime wilderness experience will find it here.

We Are the Arctic showcases the vast beauty of this remarkable untouched wilderness through beautiful images from ten of the world’s best conservation photographers. And a fascinating range of voices, including DJ Spooky, Terry Tempest Williams, and former president Jimmy Carter, share, through eloquent essays, precisely why this place is so special to them.

Every American has a stake in what happens to this public land along the wild edge of the Arctic Ocean, and, collectively, we face a choice: preserve the Arctic as the natural life-sustaining treasure as it has been for the lifetime of this planet, or, exploit it for what is estimated to be six months of American oil consumption.

This is our opportunity to save a wilderness like no other.

We Are the Arctic invites all Americans to join the veterans, Latino conservationists, Native leaders, faith leaders, poets, outdoor adventurers, African Americans, scientists, photographers and children featured within this book in asking our elected officials for the strongest possible protection for the Arctic Refuge before the close of 2016.

This book is published under our Braided River imprint. Learn more about Braided River.
