176 pp, 11 1/4" H. Beautifully illustrated with colour photographs showing the caribou and their environment through the seasons, colour maps. "(T)o most people's view, the country of the caribou is all barren land: harsh, unproductive, devoid of beauty. One of the purposes of these pages is to show that nothing could be further from the truth. The northern wilderness is barren only to those lacking in perception and imagination. But if we should let the great herds vanish from the barren-lands, they will indeed become what the name implies, and we will have lost a part of the majesty and mystery of life." Dust jacket has two small edge tears archivally taped, light wear at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.
