KIRKUS REVIEW

Years as a traveler and explorer among the Ihalmiut people in the country north of Saskatchewan resulted in this book which approaches the stature of a work of art. In sustained, vivid prose, the record emerges of a fever of longing to know the Barrens, the land and the people. He observes the amazing collective behaviour of reindeer herds, the joys and legends of the Eskimos in a seldom found perfect combination of the poetically descriptive and scientifically factual.
