This book is best appreciated by those who might have a similar attraction to wild country as does the author, Jill Fredston.

Often lyrical, always worshipful of the Arctic's Edge, Fredston's account of rowing feats along the coasts of Alaska, Greenland, Norway, and Labrador will most resonate with those who've often dipped oars or paddles into the water themselves. Just when descriptions of the thousands of miles of shoreline threaten to slip into the mundane, Fredston introduces polar bears, anthropomorphic winds, or wild water.

This book will likely resonate with those whose adventures take them to the edge as often as Fredston and her husband, Doug, spent in those fragile spaces.
