"Wen I first arrived in Barrow, the sun was shining almost around the clock, the ocean was frozen and the locals were butchering ugruks (bearded seals) in their driveways," author Lyn Kidder remembered. "I couldn't wait to read about this amazing town, and I was disappointed to find that there was no book about it. So I wrote one." Much of the material for the book was collected while Kidder worked as a correspondent for the Anchorage Daily News and The Barrow Sun. Kidder is also author of "Tacos on the Tundra," the biography of Fran "Pancha" Tate and the world's northernmost Mexican restaurant.Review:
