This is a fine press and unique book on the impact of climate change to the Arctic environment. The short and haunting words and illustrations remind us that time is running out to deal with the climate change impacts. From the artist/author, Barbara Milman, "This book is about how along with the vanishing of the summer ice in the Arctic due to climate change, many arctic species will be vanishing due to loss of habitat. Some of them need summer ice for breeding, some need cool temperatures to thrive, and others will not be able to compete with species that migrate northwards to the arctic to escape warming and drought."
