North of the sixtieth parallel, the sun shines for less than six hours in the winter, and towering mountains are the only skyscrapers. Pristine waters serve caribou, moose, and bears in an unbroken landscape. At any given moment in this spectacular scenery, there's a chance that Jonathan Waterman is present, trekking across the land. A masterful adventurer, Waterman has spent decades exploring the farthest reaches of our beautiful spaces. The essays and photographs collected in "Northern Exposures" are a product of this passion for exploration and offer an unparalleled view into adventuring in the north and beyond. Picking up after "In the Shadow of Denali", his first book of essays, "Northern Exposures" collects twenty-three stories from Waterman's thirty-year career that show the evolution of the adventurer's work, from ducking avalanches near the Gulf of Alaska to searching for the most pristine tundra on the continent, and from writing haiku on Denali in the depth of winter to decrying oil development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Ninety-six spectacular photographs taken by Waterman during his expeditions lend a broader context and allow readers to fully understand his heartfelt argument for protecting these places. Whether active, aspiring, or just armchair adventurers, readers will be inspired by Waterman's daring spirit.
