Icebound Summerby Sally Carrighar
Sally Carrighar was a prolific writer of stories of the natural world. She has an almost magical ability to bring wild creatures to life with her literary renditions of their world allowing us to get inside that world and live it briefly. In Icebound Summer, we are taken through a brief and intense arctic summer when seemingly frozen and lifeless tundra comes to life. From the arctic fox to the arctic terns overhead, we suddenly realize this is a place of surprisingly abundant life. Icebound Summer is one of the great outdoor classics of wildlife literature.

If I took a special class at the university, I couldn't come up with enough superlatives to do this book justice! I couldn't be happier that it's back in print - and mirabile dictu! this trade paper edition is actually NICE! If you like what's nebulously called 'nature' writing, this book belongs in your library BEFORE THE EVENING'S OVER! And if you typically don't read nature writing, this'll be the exception that proves your rule. Plus, the illustrations are dee-lightful.
