BBC Earth spent three years working on a documentary series on the poles, sending crews to Antarctica and the Arctic to film wildlife, the small groups of people that eke out an existence there, and the ever-shrinking ice itself. This companion piece to the Frozen Planet documentary includes dozens of stunning photographs, a seasonal exploration of the frozen climes, and a section detailing the production of the show and the book. Fans of the series or nature documentaries in general will find this tome enthralling as an educational text and as a stunning collection of images. From detailed information on polar bear gestation and hibernation habits to a remarkable photo sequence of a pod of killer whales collaborating to kill a seal, the book sheds light on day-to-day life in the harshest of climates. The self-awareness of the photographers and producers (as evidenced by commentary on the process and pitfalls of shooting in these regions) creates an interesting dialogue about the relationship between humans and nature. Indeed, the volume ends with sobering data about climate change and its impact on the poles, rendering the previous breathtaking photographs as evidence of the beauty the world stands to lose if climate change is left unchecked. Full of gorgeous images by top wildlife photographers and informative text explaining the seasonal changes in animal behavior and in the landscape, this book is a pleasure to explore.
Absolutely stunning.... Well worthy of purchase, this spectacular book is the perfect companion to the television series and is guaranteed to have an impact on the reader. It not only celebrates the wonder of the poles and their inhabitants, but Frozen Planet: A World Beyond Imagination also imparts an important message about the fragility of the environment and the responsibility of humans to act as stewards for our planet. Highly Recommended.--Gail Hamilton"Canadian Materials" (05/18/2012)
This is a keeper to delve into again and again, with or without the televised series.--Sandy Bauers"Philadelphia Inquirer" (05/19/2012)
This portrait of our polar region will surprise and amaze. Frozen Planet offers extraordinary views of frozen landscapes and animal behavior impossible to see on dry land. The full-page images are breathtaking, and the layout depicts the vastness of this landscape of ice. The team also takes us on a voyage below the ice, to the heart of the glaciers and volcanic caves of crystalline ice.... Frozen Planet is a book of immense beauty and an inexhaustible source of information. One cannot remain insensitive to the impact of humanity on this majestic landscape.--Ginette Lapointe"Photo News" (06/01/2012)
The text that accompanies the truly magnificent photographs is informative and factual. The undoubted stars of the book are the photographs of the landscape and its inhabitants, which are unworldly for a resident of a temperate region of the earth.--Clarence J. Murphy, emeritus, East Stroudsburg Uni"Science Books and Films" (02/01/2012)
