Amazing read. I couldn't put this book away after I started it. This is about the hardships life of migrant labourer Mici MacGowan (1865-1948) from poor rural Ireland (Donegal)to Scotland, America, Alaska and the Yukon. A great adventure!

(OK, not strictly Arctic, but I don't have a Sub-Arctic tag.)

Very interesting read, with a distinctive and engaging voice that comes through the translation from Irish.
