    Superb, takes you into a different world

    Complete agreement with the authors husband, I didn't purchase it from B&N because Powells had it available earlier and I didn't want to wait. I read it in one go because I wanted to know they came home safely. The book takes you into another world, so much different from ours today. Thank you Loretta for sharing this touching story with us.

    wonderful book

    this book really gives the essence of arctic living, strong family values, survival instincts, and the need to do what is best for the family unit.
