Synopsis

ALA Notable Book. The story of a nature photographer on an otherwise all-male documentary expedition to the Canadian tundra. From within a small iron cage, this small, often fearful woman is challenging herself to face the planet's largest land carnivores in the bone-aching cold of an unforgiving terrain. Before long, disaster strikes, and she must draw on her every strength in order to survive. "This riveting, assured first novel is part survival story, part coming-of-age tale. Some of Schulman's scenes are truly terrifying. People will talk about this book."--Publishers Weekly. A QUALITY PAPERBACK BOOK CLUB SELECTION.

Standing up in the van, Beryl saw one bear sniffing a closed can of paint, putting his teeth to each edge, curling his lips back, then turning the can over to try again.
