A pristine environment of ecological richness and biodiversity, Arctic Alaska contains vast quantities of oil, natural gas and coal. Home to indigenous people for thousands of years but largely uninhabited, it has long remained at the margins of global affairs. Yet it has quickly become the most contested land in recent United States history.

In Arctic Voices, world-renowned photographer, writer, and activist Subhankar Banerjee brings together first-person narratives that address issues of climate change, resource war, and human rights. More than 30 prominent activists, writers, and researchers provide a window on this remarkable region, their words delivered with stunning urgency, their ideas accompanied by groundbreaking research. From Gwich'in activist Sarah James' impassioned appeal, "We Are the Ones Who Have Everything to Lose," to an original piece by acclaimed historian Dan O'Neill about his recent trips to the Yukon Flats fish camps, Arctic Voices offers an illuminating and diverse variety of perspectives on this marvelous world up north.

Other contributors include Seth Kantner, Velma Wallis, Nick Jans, Debbie Miller, Andri Snaer Magnason, George Schaller, George Archibald, Cindy Shogan, and Peter Matthiessen.
