This book like few others had a truly feeling sensual effective way of getting through to me the vital importance of LAND and the messages it can Winter says give to us directly if only we would listen There were times during this read the beginning and the end most effectively I think that I felt a real peace and calm truly physically as I read And even as I write this I struggle to put into words Winter s message as it s so ethereal and almost spiritual I would give this book 35 stars if I could There s no doubt that it needed to be written and that is deserves one piece in what needs to be a vast mosaic of voices about the far north I need to read and I will Winter is a true listener and that is evident in her writing At times I stumbled over what felt like choppy writing but perhaps that is because of what I mentioned that this message about the spirituality of untouched land is so hard to articulate And really my point is almost irrelevant with regard to underlying message that Winter is sharing that the north belongs to no one and that it needs protection before it too is swallowed up by economics and short sighted greed And it s not just the land but all that is related the people the animals everything I really felt her message I also now really want to get on to some of Winter s fiction I have Annabel on my shelf I d like to see how she handles molds shapes her thoughts into fiction

I was expecting a writing mix of history science and personal experience but this book was personal an introspective journey through the Northwest Passage You get to know the writer and the other members of the I want to say cruise but that s not right and you start to see Canada as a land with two identities superimposed aboriginal and European The Writer purposely avoids any scientific look at the land She keeps her distance from the geologists on board the ship and even mocks them these people look at the moon and only want to tell you what kind of rocks it s made of not a direct uote but she says something like that She is the type who picks up a certain rock because it speaks to her not because it is a fascinating specimen Three uarters through and the book started to lose its momentum for me and after reading half a chapter about her love of knitting I was beginning to think that I was just touring the arctic with some dotty ex hippy But then the book ends on a powerful note You see how she has been profoundly changed by the expedition and you re glad you took the trip Besides Kathleen Winter s writing is so poetic and insightful that the book is a pleasure to read for that alone
