4 stars

This is a beautifully written book of Christiane Ritter's year in the arctic region of Norway in 1834. She spent the year with her husband and another hunter in a shack on Spitsbergen Island. Ritter is an artist by trade, and she paints wonderful pictures of the arctic with her words. She describes the journey there and her shock when she sees where she is expected to live for the next year. She takes us on a wonderful and beautiful journey. Her descriptions of the arctic winter landscape are amazing. She shares with us the wonder of nature in a way that makes you feel like you are there with her.
