Front Cover
Inside Page


  Always in the background of this remarkable book you will hear the howling winds and feel the implacable cold that make Canada's eastern Arctic the least forgiving land on the face of the earth.

But in the foreground you will find people, truly remarkable people, for Ray Price is a “people writer” and a storyteller. He tells stories about breathtaking courage and devil-possessed evil, about friendships and feuds, high adventure and domestic comedy, about heroes and murderers, priests, traders, sailors, policemen, hunters and trappers – and even about a few men-like Windy Smith – who are in the Arctic because it is the one place in the world they want to be.

The land has always been there, but it is the people in Ray Price's book who have added it to our map – found it, occupied it, lived and died in it. And made it a part of Canada.

In The Howling Arctic, the fascinating story of the eastern Arctic is told for the first time.
