Guided by photographer Jeff Jones’s sure 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.
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.

Jeff Jones has an exceptional talent for capturing ‘big sky’ landscapes. . . . Accompanied by informative and easy-to-read text that describes the images and the region written by Laurie Hoyle, this is a book you can read, savor and enjoy again and again. Arctic Sanctuary: Images of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge published by the University of Alaska Press is a visual delight and a book I can highly recommend to nature lovers, landscape photographers and those who care about the environment.
