The Stars, the Snow, the Fire: Twenty-Five Years in the Alaska Wilderness Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this wilderness classic, the quintessential Alaskan frontiersman relates his experiences from over twenty years as a homesteader. As New York Newsday has said of his work, "If Alaska had not existed, Haines might well have invented it."

Review:

"A powerful, beautifully articulated love of the land....An existence as near to that half-mythic thing we celebrate as the 'frontier experience' as could be found anywhere in the 20th century." Washington Post Book World

Review:

"Such a life may not be possible again. So it is good that a writer of Mr. Haines's rare vision and poetic eloquence lived this life, and good that he has shared it." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"An invaluable addition to American literature." Booklist (starred review)
