  • The Arctic dreamland seen and described by a writer of rare perception and poetic descriptive power... The pages sparkle with Arctic light

    David Stephen, Scotsman
  • A marvellous evocation of the Arctic by a naturalist, who is part poet... A magical book to read slowly and savour

    Gillian Somerville-Large, Irish Times
  • Barry Lopez by some rare magic manages to combine a poetic vision with accuracy of observation; and although he writes mainly about Eskimos, polar bears, and other denizens of the frozen north, many of his perceptive insights apply the world over

    Paula Johnson, Mail on Sunday
  • Dazzling... Treats the distant, snowy world of the Arctic as a place that exists not only in the mathematics of geography but also in the terra incognita of our imaginations

    Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
  • By what comes close to sheer magic, the magic of a highly literate and perceptive naturalist, Barry Lopez has transformed the austerity and Sibelius-like gloom of the tundra and great ice walls into a living pageant of high latitudes. This book will become a classic within its genre

    John Hillaby
