From the back: “Somewhere in the schwatka mountains of northwest Alaska, a region of great natural beauty and stark solitude, a little log cabin sits beside a river. In that “magic place” author James Ramsey lived alone for 266 days, testing himself against solitude and watching an arctic winter come and go. This book is his account of what happens in the sky, the land, and the river, and how he coped with the cold, the long darkness and hazards unforeseen.
Ramsey, who spends his summers as a guide in Denali national park, has spent other winters in other remote parts on the globe. To this one he would go again, gladly. “
