Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The author of A Match to the Heart describes her seven-year odyssey back and forth to Greenland to explore the culture, society, and lifestyle of the polar Eskimos and to learn about the lives of others who had chosen to live in a land dominated by ice.

Review:
"Singular, impressionistic sketches of an otherworld."

Kirkus, 08/15/2001

Review:
"THIS COLD HEAVEN suffers from a lack of information about its author. We don't know where she comes from , in the psychological sense, so it's difficult to get a bead on where she's going, or how her experiences change her....Ehrlich has written a stunning portrait of a people and the landscape that shaped them. Her story has great emotional and physical sweep, and one shares her sense of loss at leaving this peculiarly fascinating place. 'For seven years I used the island as a looking glass: part window, part mirror,' she writes. It's a pity we can't learn what she saw of herself in that glass."

Elizabeth Royte, New York Times Book Review, 11/18/01

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Vintage Books ed. 201 x 130 mm. Brand New Book. For the last decade, Gretel Ehrlich has been obsessed by an island, a terrain, a culture, and the treacherous beauty of a world that is defined by ice. In This Cold Heaven she combines the story of her travels with history and cultural anthropology to reveal a Greenland that few of us could otherwise imagine. Ehrlich unlocks the secrets of this severe land and those who live there; a hardy people who still travel by dogsled and kayak and prefer the mystical four months a year of endless darkness to the gentler summers without night. She discovers the twenty-three words the Inuit have for ice, befriends a polar bear hunter, and comes to agree with the great Danish-Inuit explorer Knud Rasmussen that all true wisdom is only to be found far from the dwellings of man, in great solitudes. This Cold Heaven is at once a thrilling adventure story and a meditation on the clarity of life at the extreme edge of the world. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780679758525
