This book had very interesting facts and is told in a way that it doesn't seem like a text book, but a novel.

It is worth the reading to be reminded that life is precious and worth the fight.

This book I have never forgotten. I first was introduced to it in the Reader's Digest Condensed Book Section when it first came out. I was so fascinated by the writing style and well-documented information that we went to the library and read the entire book; but that was not the end of it. I figured if my Father could entice me to read "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" than he could appreciate my "great read". He did and because he enjoyed it as much as I did,it made the book doubly attractive and memorable to me. The survivalist thrill that is all the rage now has nothing on Ivar Ruud's adventures! Ann and Evan Maxwell did a great job making this a reading experience never to be duplicated.

The book begins with Ivar Rudd setting on a 9 month trapping journey on an Isle in the North Atlantic. This was the days when good wages could still be made from trapping fur bearing animals, especially polar bear. I remember reading until 4:00 am the first day because I was riveted to the story. It is worth the reading to be reminded that life is precious and worth the fight. You'll not be disappointed if you enjoy the outdoors or humanitarian true to life stories. My local library has a book, but it is hard to find.

I loved this book! It was able to hold my attention as I read about one man's survival in the wild arctic. It showed me that humans can survive even the most extreme circumstances. If you can find yourself a copy of this book...you should give it a try! Who knows? You might just like it too!

Definitely worth reading, although not as exciting as I was led to believe.
Really makes you think about what you would do without seeing the Sun for so long.
