Despite the main character, Erasmus's, inability to make decisions and his poor judgement, I loved this book! Barrett's descriptions of the crew's experience in the Artic was outstanding evoking both place and mystery. The cultural differences between the Eskimo and white men were realistically wrought. All th emain charcters are haunted by longings as dramatic as the artic landscape.
