"Alfred Purdy has beencalled the most arresting and significant poet writing in Canada at presen t. A.Y. Jackson is one of Canada's most respected artists, and a member of the original Group of Seven. This magnificent volume combines both their talents to provide a dramatic image of the Arctic. Purdy's poems are the product of a summer spent among the Eskimos on a Canada Council grant in 1965. Here, in simple languge, Purdy celebrates the raw beauty of the North, describing everything from Arctic rhododendrons to an Eskimo graveyard. He brings the vast and lonely Arctic into human persepctive by looking closely at everyday things -- flowers and animals, rivers and people. A.Y. Jackson's paintings are already legendary in Canada. In 'North of Summer' eight of hisbest oil sketches from the Arctic, including 'Mount Asgard', 'Glacier Lake ' and 'Baffin Island' are reproduced in colour; they provide a superb accompaniment to Purdy's poems." - from the dustjacket.
