As a young man Hugh Beach went to live with the Saami reindeer hunters of Swedish Lapland. His lyrically written and very personal story of trying to fit into the herding way of life is a rare insider's account of the Saami. In a passionate and informed Afterword to this new edition of the book, he revisits his old friends and looks at how Sweden is attempting to balance the conflicting needs of reindeer herders and environmentalists in the 21st century.

Industry Reviews

An awesome story of grueling work, adventure and friendship above the arctic Circle. . . . Beach gives a memorable portrait of a vanishing way of life.
