Samenvatting

A Dream in Polar Fog is at once a cross-cultural journey, an ethnographic chronicle of the people of Chukotka, and a politically and emotionally charged adventure story. It is the story of John MacLennan, a Canadian sailor who is left behind by his ship, stranded on the northeastern tip of Siberia and the story of the Chukchi community that adopts this wounded stranger and teaches him to live as a true human being. Over time, John comes to know his new companions as a real people who share the best and worst of human traits with his own kind. Tragedy strikes, and wounds are healed with compassion and honesty as tensions rise and fall. Rytkheu?s empathy, humor, and provocative voice guide us across the magnificent landscape of the North and reveal all the complexity and beauty of a vanishing world.

Recensie(s)

'A fascinating account of the Chukchi way of life.' Stef Penney'It recalls the best work of Jack London and Herman Melville ... a novel in the grandest sense of the word.' Neal Pollack'Yuri Rytkheu is a world-class writer. It gave me the same haunting and powerful reading experience as reading Melville's travel fictions.' Howard Norman'Hauntingly and poetically brings the Arctic alive.' Orion'A graceful, moving story of cultures in collision - and concord - in the far north.' Kirkus Review
