The Arctic landscape

The landscape conveys an impression of absolute permanence. It is not hostile. It is simply there – untouched, silent, complete. It is very lonely, yet the absence of all human traces gives you the feeling you understand this land and can take your place in it. –Edmund Snow Carpenter, Arctic anthropologist


The Arctic hasthe classic lines of a desert landscape: spare, balanced, extended, and quiet. – Barry Lopez, writer and naturalist
