Description

In 1934, the Austrian painter Christiane Ritter travels to the remote Arctic island of Spitsbergen to spend a year with her husband, an explorer and researcher. At first, Christiane is horrified by the freezing cold, the bleak landscape the lack of equipment and supplies. But, as time passes, she finds herself falling in love with the Arctic’s harsh, otherworldly beauty. This rediscovered classic memoir tells the incredible tale of a woman defying society’s expectations to find freedom and peace in the adventure of a lifetime.
