Reviews

Praise for Boundless

"The vessel's tight quarters give Winter plenty of room to observe her companions, and the result is an intriguing chronicle of a journey through the Northwest Passage ... her ability to toggle between nature writing and personal reflection will keep readers following in her wake."--New York Times Book Review

"[A] profound and lyrical memoir of a transformative journey ... Of all the kindred spirits Winter meets on this extraordinary journey, she writes most powerfully of the land."--Publisher's Weekly Starred Review

"Perceptive and thoughtful, Winter's ruminations on Arctic life and its continuous clashes with modern civilization are compelling and thought-provoking. The north is a place rarely visited and little understood, but it looms ever larger in our collective future, and to ignore it and its people would be an act of global arrogance."--Booklist, Starred Review

"Literate, luminous travels in the far north....Winter finds just the right note of learned wonder....With the eye of a poet and the stamina of an Amundsen, Winter proves a delightful guide into unexplored realms. Worthy of shelving alongside Barry Lopez's Arctic Dreams"--Kirkus Starred Review

"A richly detailed account of the author's voyages across Greenland, examining historic disputes and modern-day conflicts taking place at the top of the world."--Outside Magazine

"Compulsively readable... it both heightens life and plumbs its deepest mysteries, laying bare the beauty of both the world and the soul." --Globe and Mail

"Ultimately, the journey that Kathleen Winter takes on a last-minute whim is transformative. Her precise and vivid prose allows the reader to share in that transformation. For the many readers who admired Annabel and want to get to know its author better, Boundless is a tremendous gift." --Quill and Quire

"...[G]raceful, poetic, and shimmering prose..."--The Toronto Star

Praise for Annabel

"Kathleen Winter's lyrical voice and her crystalline landscape are enchanting."--The New Yorker

"Winter possesses a rare blend of lyrical brilliance, descriptive power, and psychological and philosophical insight." --Kirkus, Starred Review

"...[T]he novel's moral of acceptance and understanding is sure to win Winter many fans." Β¬--Publishers Weekly
