Guided by photographer Jeff Jones’s sure and well-developed vision, Arctic Sanctuary leads the reader on a remarkable journey that few of us will ever take in real life: a trek deep into Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. By turns celebratory and contemplative, emotionally evocative and beautifully fierce, this collection of lyrical essays and stunning panoramic photographs pays homage to a vast and remote land that remains untamed by technology and undisturbed by human development. A rare window into a world that is whole, ecologically intact, and still driven by ancient evolutionary energies, Arctic Sanctuary invites us to examine our own ideas of the wilderness ethic in the modern world.

Art Wolfe | Art Wolfe's Travels to the Edge

“In Jeff Jones’s masterly landscapes of the Arctic I find a majestic peace and a powerful call to action to protect this sanctuary of wildlife and wildness. This book beautifully showcases a pristine land caught in the crosshairs of the greatest of human calamities, including global climate change and the grim search for energy resources.”

Rick Braveheart | Great American Landscape
