Synopsis: A never-before-seen look into the forbidding environment of glaciers, this book celebrates a realm of magnificent endangered beauty. Since 2005, renowned nature photographer James Balog has devoted himself to capturing glaciers and documenting their daily changes. These stunning images are a celebration of some of the most extraordinary natural formations on earth, as well as a dramatic and timely demonstration of the stark consequences resulting from global warming?from Alaska to Iceland to the Alps. As glaciologists for the Extreme Ice Survey, Balog and his team are conducting the most extensive glacier study ever, covering France, Switzerland, Iceland, Greenland, the United States (Alaska and Montana), Nepal, Bolivia, and Antarctica. Their high-resolution cameras capture approximately 4,000 images per year. From this collection of nearly half a million photos, Balog presents the most stunning panoramic photography of glaciers ever published.

About the Author: James Balog?s photographs have been exhibited at more than one hundred museums and galleries worldwide, and his work has been featured in National Geographic, The New Yorker, and Vanity Fair, among many other magazines. Known for her impassioned and lyrical prose, Terry Tempest Williams is a well-known author of environmental literature and the recipient of dozens of awards for her nonfiction.
