When ice traps John MacLennans ship in the Bering Strait in 1910, the youthful sailor blows up his hands trying to widen a small fissure with dynamite.Local Chukchi men take him by dogsled to a medicine woman, but gangrene sets in and Johns hands have to be amputated.

Then strong winds break the ice shelf and his ship sails off without him ...John gradually adapts to his handicap, adopting Chukchi ways and finding friendship, and love, among his hosts. Even his role in the tragic, accidental death of his best friend pulls him deeper into the communitys folds.A remarkable tale of resilience and reconciliation set in one of the most majestic and inhospitable environments on earth.Translated by Ilona Yazhbin Chavasse.Yuri Rytkheu was born into a family of Chukchi hunters in Siberia in 1930.

He sailed the Bering Sea, worked on Arctic geological expeditions, hunted whale, defended the indigenous Chukchi people since the fall of the Soviet Union, and championed Siberias environment, in addition to writing over ten novels and collections of stories. He was the definitive voice of the Chukchi people.Yuri passed away in May 2008.
