Pub. Date:
A writer, musician, and mathematician based in Nevada, Reid had just turned 60 when he found himself 200 miles north the Arctic Circle. But he remembered how he had gotten there and what he had come for. Himself and a friend were there to witness the annual calving of the Porcupine caribou herd, named after the nearby Porcupine River, in traditional Inuvialuit territory through which Canada and Alaska drew their border. He recounts the experience, drawing on scientific and historical literature now and then, in sections on Alaska, Yukon, and closing the circle. Among his topics are a sure wind in spring, the island, salmon smoothies, the Porcupine in winter, a great land within, and a vow fulfilled. The memoir is not indexed.
