The book was in good condition. The story captivated me and very well written, I couldn't put it down. While usually I am a slow reader who finds it hard to take in words,sort of (lack of memory-caused by having epilepsy all my life, maybe on a par with hidden dyslexia). Still I loved being taken into an artic world, how a person from a world I see as glistening snow ,all beautiful, shows the real hardships of this other world. Any-one interested in geography,who likes getting away from it all and being remote(or just dreaming that's what they'd like to do), artic traveling, or natural wonders of our planet, will be interested, to read what it's really like to grow up in such a remote place.Recommended
This is the best book I have read in a long time. I have recently spent time in Alaska and the Canadian North and this excellent book has helped me to understand the real Alaska and Arctic regions and not just the theme park version.This is a "must read" for anyone who wants to probe beneath the veneer of the Last Frontier and get an appreciation of the role that money and development has in destroying a proud culture.
