Book Review


Arctic foxes are amazing, majestic creatures with fierce survival instincts. As the winter nears, these animals prepare for a long, tumultuous trek across the tundra. With sheer determination, they set off alone and travel an incredible 2,000 miles through icy, cold, and hazardous conditions. They travel through blizzards, over glaciers, and around jagged, snow-covered peaks, often coming to the brink of starvation. While it remains unclear why these relatively small mammals choose to participate in such arduous adventures year after year, they are relentless in their quest and defy seemingly insurmountable odds.
