As writing, Arctic Eden begs comparison with Barry Lopez's Arctic Dreams, and bears that comparison quite handsomely. Then there are the photos, which are the best images of the High Arctic I've ever seen. Lawrence Millman, author of Lost in the Arctic. Ed Douglas, author of Tenzing: Hero of Everest

Arctic Eden also showcases Kobalenko's magnificent photographs of the region, capturing wildlife such as walrus, muskoxen, and Arctic wolves and stunning geographical features from towering icebergs to virgin snowscapes under a sky of wild lenticular clouds.

In this intimate portrait, Jerry Kobalenko shares a series of journeys he has taken around the High Arctic by foot, skis, kayak, and ship that provide a multifaceted view of this most beautiful and most vulnerable part of the Arctic. Combining natural history, exploration, and personal experiences gathered during 20 years of Arctic travel, the book explores the ice caps and glaciers of Ellesmere Island; introduces us to Axel Heiberg’s magical fossil forest of cypress trees; follows the author’s journey of more than 400 miles on skis from Devon Island to Alexander Fiord, punctuated by several near-fatal encounters with polar bears; and comments on changes in climate Kobalenko has witnessed throughout the High Arctic. The book also showcases Kobalenko’s magnificent photographs of the region, capturing wildlife such as walruses, muskoxen, and Arctic wolves, and stunning geographical features from towering icebergs to virgin snowscapes under a sky of wild lenticular clouds.

The author's stunningly beautiful photography, coupled with his obvious appreciation for the land and its people, makes this book a must-read for anyone interested in the northern climes of North America.

I was blown away by these photos and accompanying narratives. Gorgeous images from places only few of us will ever see. It is so meditative to gaze at these photos. Worth every penny!

This is a good book to get an idea of how it is in the High Arctic region. Jerry is traveling the Ellesmere island for 20 years now. His writing has a natural feeling about beeing in a frozen place. Is just like you are there, with him. And the pictures are beautiful.
