166 EHRLICH, Gretel. This Cold Heaven : Seven Seasons in Greenland. First Edition in dustjacket.
Pantheon Books, New York, 2001, ISBN:0679442006 
EHRLICH, Gretel. This Cold Heaven : Seven Seasons in Greenland. New York: Pantheon Books, (2001). First Printing. Pp. (8),ix-xv,(3),3-377,(7). Illustrated, maps to endpapers. 8vo, dark grey paper covered spine with blue papercovered boards, silver lettering to spine. "For the last decade, Gretel Eh rlich has been obsessed by an island, a terrain, a culture, and the men andwomen who long for and love the complex frailties and treacherous beauty o f a world defined by ice. Greenland, the world's largest island, 840,000 square miles in extent, is covered by the largest continental ice sheet in the world. Only the rocky fringe of its coast is habitable. There, the Inuit,the Arctic's first explorers, have survived and thrived in the harshest of climates. For the Inuit, an ice-age, ice-adapted people who first traveled from Siberia across the polar North six thousand years ago, weather is con sciousness. In a world composed of ice and darkness, water and light, whereskins of dog, seal, bear, even hare and eider duck, are sewn into clothes, tents, and sleeping bags as protection, where transport is by dogsled and kayak, the only rein for the uncontrollable force of weather is an unbending self-discipline. The blend of physical endurance and psychological persevereance required for daily existence first drew Ehrlich to this terrain. Her guide, her inspiration, her companion in spirit was the great Danish-Inuit explorer and ethnographer Knud Rasmussen. Between 1902 and his death in 1933 he launched seven expeditions: to record the unknown history and customs of the nomadic Eskimos; to chronicle the skills, beliefs and crafts that made life in this climate possible and a matter of grace. For Rasmussen, 'all true wisdom is only to be found far from the dwellings of man, in great solitudes.' As she followed his trail, Ehrlich was to find the things that can open the mind to what is hidden from others. 'This Cold Heaven' is at once a distillation of her many journeys, a path into a world divided into darkness and light and, finally, an attempt to capture the clarity that blinds us with surprise." - from the dustjacket.

A few maps in text. 8vo, blue, white and purplepaper-covered boards, with white spine. American University Studies Series IX, History, Vol.188. "The Northwest Passage is so far north that only a p olar projection map presents an accurate picture of its expanse. It has been both an integral part of Canada's national identity and a source of contention between the United States and Canada. Canadian claims that the Passage is internal Canadian waters have been challenged by United States insistence that it is an international strait. Continental partners and allies, the two countries have charted a unique course in continental cooperation, while concurrently working to resolve contentious bilateral issues. This study places the Northwest Passage in the context of U.S. - Canadian relations and argues that its resolution lies in the spirit and history of bilateral cooperation found in the second half of the twentieth century." - from rearboard.
