Polly Evans is a travel writer; her fifth book Mad Dogs and an Englishwoman, took her to the subzero wilderness of Canada's Yukon Territory. Awards for her work include the 2006 Independent on Sunday / Bradt Travel Guides travel-writing competition for her piece on dog-sledding in Canada’s Yukon Territory.

Martin Hartley specialises in documenting the most inaccessible parts of the planet. He first gained public recognition at the age of 17 as Runner-Up in the Young Wildlife Photographer of The Year 1987 and has worked as a professional photographer ever since. His sustained commitment to capture the beauty of unadulterated landscapes and remote communities has taken him to some of the most isolated and challenging locations in the world including the Canadian Arctic.
