"Reindeer Trek is a magnificent saga (told in the form of a novel) of the five-year trek of 3,000 reindeer across the roof of the world. It is a gripping story of human courage, unfailing purpose, and unending endurance. We feel the mysterious spirit of the Arctic night; we hear the voices of incredible tempests, we see the wavering curtains of the Northern Lights. Across this tremendous background march a strange people of primitive impulse and emotion, and the reader marches with them, with Jon and Pehr, with Mikel and Kaas and the other great ones, along the edge of the Arctic Sea."
