REVIEW ↠ Arctic Autumn ï [Read] ➳ Arctic Autumn By Pete Dunne – The Arctic doesn't spring to mind when most people think about autumn Yet in his continuing effort to invite readers' curiosity through unpredictability Pete Dunne chose to pair the transitional seaso The Arctic doesn't spring to mind when most people think The Arctic doesn't spring to mind when most people think about autumn Yet in his continuing effort to invite readers' curiosity through unpredictability Pete Dunne chose to pair the transitional season of autumn with this fragile environment in flux The book begins on Bylot Island in Nunavut Canada at the retreating edge of the seasonal ice sheet then moves to Alaska where the needs of molting geese go head to he. After having read one of his other books and being a bit on the leery side I chose to try this author again and see if another of his books would hold my interest Unfortunately this book was or less the one that I should have steered away from for although it was interesting there was lots of red flags while instead of helping me feel good and find some pleasure in either the Arctic or autumn I ended up finding myself reading a book that was or less an environmental message that also faced the declining years of one's life and also a rub in that or less for an eco friendly once in a lifetime opportunity I must be rich First of all what threw me for this particular book was the fact that the author acknowledged that he really didn't know the Arctic landscape As a result I was highly hoping to learn and to be able to dive into the mystical world of the land that doesn't seem to end but instead upon looking at resources included I found or less that Peter seemed to rely and on Wikipedia As a result I was uite disappointed since although Wiki is good it isn't reliable Further although the reader was introduced to the Arctic along with some of its plants and animals it wasn't all inclusive thus any marine life was missing the musk ox and even than a passing description of the lemming Other symbolic cornerstone Arctic animals were felt upon their plight given and how they influence the world around them although the majority of the book was or less about the birds yet again Otherwise the author was too much self seeking with long rants about the environment and how we are destroying it I am not against these books but when I want to read about those types of subjects then I will find a non seasonal book whose main subject is environmental issues or in exploring how his aging years has gotten him to the autumn of his own life Just not my type of tea


R rare birds and ponder the passionate nature of competitive bird listers No trip to the Arctic would be complete without a trip to see polar bears so Pete and his wife visit Churchill Manitoba the polar bear capital of the world These majestic but threatened creatures lead Pete to think about his own life our interactions with the natural world and the importance of the Arctic North America's last great wilderne. Pete Dunne is an excellent writer in that he can relate any of his experiences to a sometimes serious sometimes humorousuniversal human situation He is at times kind of a complicated man I've met him but his writing is captivating whether he is discussing Arctic polar bears or grumpy outfitters good book; third in a series i can't wait for the next one to come out

Arctic AutumnAd with society's need for oil Then on to the Barren Lands of Canada and a search for the celebrated caribou herds that mean life and death for human and animal predators alike A canoe trip down the John River is filled with memories laughter and contemplation a caribou hunt with a professional trapper leads to a polemic on hunting and Pete travels to an island in the Bering Sea off the coast of Alaska to look fo. Arctic Autumn A Journey to Season's Edge is the latest in Pete Dunne's four part series of books based on seasons in North America The autumn of the book's title is not autumn as readers in a temperate climate might conceive it At northerly latitudes the warm season is short and summer is fleeting Thus Dunne begins his narrative at the summer solstice in June when days begin to shorten and animals begin preparations for the long winter The impact of humans on the Arctic is never far from Dunne's narrative especially the large scale changes wrought by energy development and climate change Thought provoking on these impacts are interwoven with Dunne's experience of Arctic wildlife and landscapes The narrative is engaging and informative At several points I found myself wanting to visit the places Dunne describes The book is definitely worth a read for anyone interested in the ArcticSee my full review on A DC Birding Blog
