Don't take my word for it...
I've been reading more than usual.  Much more.  I brought one book with me, lent to me by a friend just before I left, as well as an old Nook that I can use to download library ebooks.  But I haven't needed to download any books aside from one that was stor...

Where are all the animals?
Considering the conditions outdoors in the Arctic, it's amazing anything survives the winter at all.  Yet bears, moose, Dall sheep, caribou, muskoxen, foxes, hares, ravens, boreal owls, lemmings, voles, mosquitos, spiders, wood frogs, and many, many more sp...

Ice
It's not hard to see evidence of ice in Coldfoot, even in summer.  Even today, there's snow on the nearby mountains.  The taller the peak, the more snow you see.  You can even dig down under the moss and lichen in the forest or out in the tussock fields and...
