Σύνοψη του βιβλίου "Nuvuk, the Northernmost"

For years, tour guide Daniel James Inulak Lum has brought visitors as well as his children out to the remote corners of Barrow, Alaska, one of the northernmost cities in the world, to witness polar bears and walrus on the dark, sandy beaches. Over time, snapping pictures for tourists and shooting photographs of his own, he has been a witness to the profound environmental changes taking place as his homeland shifts and disappears before his eyes. As arguments over climate change rage in more temperate locales, Nuvuk, the Northernmost is a poignant snapshot of life in a town where these changes are impossible to overlook. Lum's vivid photographs of wildlife, such as whales, polar bears, and birds, offer rare closeups of animals few ever see. In addition, Lum provides vivid descriptions and pictures of daily life in and around Barrow, offering a compelling insider's introduction to living on the tip of the world. With Lum as a capable guide, "Nuvuk, the Northernmost" is a chance to see a rare world before it changes forever.
