Preview: Hear it

Imagine a land where the sun rises at 1:58 a.m. in the summer and shines for less than four hours on a winters day. The animals in the wilderness near Fairbanks, Alaska, witness some of the worlds greatest temperature extremes and light variations every year. At an average low of 16 degrees Fahrenheit, the winters may be unpleasantly frigid, but the light shows are always glorious! Acclaimed author Debbie S. Miller details the sunsets, twilight, alpenglow, diamond dust, and other quietly beautiful phenomena that color the Land of the Midnight Sun, describing each animals activities in both the warm and cold seasons. The dramatic changes in light are captured perfectly in Jon Van Zyles striking illustrations.
