A Thousand Trails Home: Living with Caribou
"A Thousand Trails Home is a book of supernal majesty, a book to break and restore your heart. Seth Kantner’s devotion to the living pulse and unity of the skein of wonder that is the Alaskan wilderness haunts and inspires me."
- Louise Erdrich, author of The Night Watchman
"A rare thing of beauty, a novel alive with detail about a life most of us would never experience."
- Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times Book Review
"...A tour de force and may be the best treatment of the Northwest and its people since Jack London's works."
- Publisher's Weekly (starred review)
Shopping For Porcupine
"Seth Kantner illuminates an Alaska most of us will never know."
- Andrea Barrett, author of Ship Fever and
The Voyage of the Narwhal
"Suspense and heartache are matched by wry humor and outrage, and all is infused with Kantner’s humility and deep respect for the wild...Crafted with the precision and nerve acquired by living off the land, this is a powerful and important book of remembrance, protest, and warning."
Pup and Pokey
A boisterous wolf pup and an awkward young porcupine are unlikely allies in this tale of friendship set on Alaska's tundra. The two grow up as neighbors, but only through helping each other escape from a trapper do they learn what it means truly to be friends.
