Arctic National Wildlife Refuge lives on

Posted: Sunday, January 26, 2003

Anticipating a renewal of the debate over whether to drill for oil in northern Alaska, The Mountaineers Books of Seattle plans in April to publish "Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: Seasons of Life and Land."

The book (160 pages, hardcover, $35) will feature 120 full color photos taken over two years by Subhankar Banerjee of Bellevue, Wash.

A foreword by Jimmy Carter and essays by Peter Matthiessen, David Allen Sibley and George Schaller describe the unique ecosystem and how it would be threatened by oil exploration.
