"Graham Rowley documents an era of arctic exploration of which little has been written and which is fast passing from living memory. A member of the last expedition in the Canadian North to depend on traditional techniques, Rowley captures the way of life in the North before the dramatic changes of the last half century. He describes the isolation, the extraordinary vicissitudes of travel in an unexplored and sometimessavage environment, and the generosity and kindness of the Inuit." -from t he dj.
