|Summary, etc.:||In a world ever more congested and polluted with both toxins and noise, award-winning photographer Pete McBride takes readers on a once-in-a-lifetime escape--a pole-to-pole, continent-by-continent quest for peace and quiet. We tend to think of silence as the absence of sound, but it is actually the void where we can hear the sublime notes of nature. In Seeing Silence, McBride reveals the wonders of these hushed places in spectacular imagery--from the thin-air flanks of Mount Everest to the depths of the Grand Canyon, from the high-altitude vistas of the Atacama to the African savannah, and from the Antarctic Peninsula to the flowing waters of the Ganges River. Often showing beauty from vantages where no photographer has ever stood, this seven-continent visual tour of global quietude will both inspire and calm. The images are meant to reveal the natural music of our wild realms and their importance not only for wildlife, but also for the fragile solace they provide us. They are reminders of the natural world and what it has to say--if we listen--book jacket.|
