Dark WinterDark Winter
The bottom of the planet, in the depth of winter. Hurricane-force winds howl on the icescape. Temperatures drop as low as 110 degrees below zero. The world is illuminated only the stars and the brilliant aurora australis. It is so cold that planes cannot operate, engines freeze and a false step away from the flagged pathways can mean disorientation in a fog of blowing snow. There is no possibility of evacuation, and no chance of outside rescue. You depend on the tiny group of fellow South Pole researchers for companionship, for competence, for life itself. Except that one of you is a killer . . .

On Puget Sound
by Art Wolfe (Author), William Dietrich (Author), Philip Kramer (Contributor)

For his new book of images, Art Wolfe, a Seattle-born photographer who has traveled the world to capture landscapes and animals on film, turns to the place he knows best: Puget Sound, the beautiful waterway that defines the western Washington coast. From Olympia in the south to the San Juan Islands, from the foothills of the Cascade Range to the face of the Olympic Mountains, this is an exceptionally picturesque region. Despite the grandiosity of the landscape, Wolfe brings a sense of intimacy to his views of this place. He explores hidden estuaries and beaches, lush river deltas, undulating pastures, and, of course, the animated shapes and patterns of water. Wolfe also finds much beauty in the unique buildings and vessels that lend character to Puget Sound.
