"This is truly an adventure story--an intense and gripping exploration of the extreme reaches of the outer and inner world. It reminds me of Jon Krakauer's work with its blend of suspense and analysis and its sheer ability to communicate why and how people do extraordinary things. Though set in the dark, long Arctic winter, North to the Night is filled with illumination." -- Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature "A grand adventure on a vast and awesome scale, wrought onto paper by a writer with a true gift." --The Washington Times "The flair of a storyteller and the outlook of a philosopher . . ." --The Buffalo News
