When Adam signs on as cabin boy for a disastrous Arctic expedition, he is little prepared for the amazing beauty and extreme demands of the coast, not to mention the extraordinary survival skills of the local Inuit. One of his earliest allies on board is an Eskimo girl called Pipaluk. When the ship gets stuck in the ice, Adam and Pipaluk must travel over the treacherous ice floes in search of help. As their journey lengthens, Adam learns a great deal about Arctic survival, about himself, and finally about his love for Pipaluk and her harsh homeland.
