KIRKUS REVIEW

Will Carlson's project involved the building and maintaining of bases in Greenland, Labrador, and Alaska for anti-submarine work and for fueling stops for planes. He recalls the early ordeal of flying in unaccustomed snow and ice, tells how crews survived when forced down on ice fields, and makes particularly vivid the life at the remote Arctic air fields themselves. Young people interested in military history and present defense efforts in the land of constant cold will find this informative.
