ARCTIC DREAMS. Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape
Lopez, Barry

New York: Scribner's, 1986. First edition Proof copy. Winner of the National Book Award. Lopez offers a thorough examination of this obscure world-its terrain, its wildlife, its history of Eskimo natives and intrepid explorers who have arrived on their icy shores. But what turns this marvelous work of natural history into a breathtaking study of profound originality is his unique meditation on how the landscape can shape our imagination, desires, and dreams. Bound in red printed wrappers, with one minor corner crease to the front panel. Uncommon format for this prize winner. A near fine copy Paperback 055326396X (Item ID: ESB03086)
