Swallowed by the Great Land

by Seth Kanter

In his latest book, Swallowed by the Great Land, more than fifty slice-of-life essays and stories delve, with startling lyricism and insight, into the duality in Kanter's life today, and explore his village and community on the remote northwest coast of Alaska. From memories of making snowshoes out of birch and caribou hides alongside a wizened old-timer to the economic development that brings more jobs but more violence, and from watching his eight-year-old correctly identify bear tracks to building trust with a resilient hand-me-down dog, Kanter's stories reveal a complex mosaic of rich and varied lives carved out on the ever-changing tundra.
