Dan Bittner narrates this eloquent evocation of life in the Alaskan outback in the clearest of tones and an assured style. His voice expresses the elemental beauty and fierce exigencies of growing up in the wilds of the tundra, accompanied by the planet's vastest herd of caribou. He captures the wilderness sensibility of a life filled with natural history and the changing landscape of people and animals at civilization's edge. Kantner's boyhood consisted of "hunting and gathering," homeschooling, and learning the folkways of Native people. The author knew how to skin a caribou and use all its parts as a boy. In this engaging audiobook, he bears witness to how his home state--and especially the noble arctic caribou--are being challenged by modernity and climate change. A.D.M.
