What other readers are saying about this title:
Jennifer L. said:
Born in 1965 in a sod igloo in Arctic Alaska and raised in the ways of the Inupiaq people Kantner, using a pleasant coversational tone, shares true stories of his own tundra experiences from childhood through adulthood. Kantner testifies to the immense challanges of day-to-day survival in a homemade sod igloo, a structure that was regularly buried by sudden snow squalls in a climate where "frostbite was a way of life." While the chapters, containing pictures taken by the author, read like individual stories it is the entire book’s beauty I found outstanding. A wonderful story for those loving true-life tales and especially those with an interest in nature and Native American life.

This is a wonderful story. It just pulls you along into a life so different from what we experience. Seth Kantner is an outstanding writer. See his Ordinary Wolves as well - it is a novel, but reads like his expanded life.
