Abstract:

Farley Mowat spins fascinating tales from the heritage of the Arctic North. The Snow Walker revives a haunting portrait of a land and its people--where the merciless power of the elements creates unique bonds between men and between men and their world--capturing the essential mystery of the Arctic and of Eskimo lore. All of these stories deal with survival, whether they are fact or fiction, whether they speak of the earliest life in the Arctic or the most contemporary. Each is a powerful piece of writing about people who are threatened with extinction by civilization, by the greed and cruelty of man, and by the rigors of nature. Mowat's stories describe not only the hardships of life in the Arctic and the almost invincible snow, wind, and cold; they also celebrate the beauty of the North and the human endurance and courage that withstand its most fearsome elements. Through its poignant narratives of a way of life that is no more, The Snow Walker is sure to be counted among Farley Mowat's foremost contributions as a writer.--From jacket.
