Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book that brings alive the daily struggles of those who have chosen to live in Alaska. It is full of colourful descriptions of the people and the environment in which they live that draws you in and makes you feel like you know them personally. It also describes a very personal journey for Brian Keenan and moved me to tears on a number of occasions.

I simply loved this book. Keenan's writing style is deeply personal without ever getting sentimental. Although it is some time since I read the book, many of the images the author creates live on in my mind. What more can I say?

Having just finished the book I feel a little deflated... Dont get me wrong - there are some excellant charactors and stories retold; which do help bring to life the people and environment. However I did not feel comfortable with the writing style; or how the author kept summing up in terms of his experiences; his ideas; his feelings. In many ways it reads more like an autobiography, and less like a travel narrative.

I haven't had time to read it yet, but look forward to that very much as I enjoy Brian Keenan's work - he paints pictures with words and never overdoes it.
