Land of the Midnight Sun Book Review:

While the Klondike Gold Rush is one of the most widely known events in Canadian history, particularly outside Canada, the rest of the Yukon's long and diverse history attracts little attention. Important developments such as Herschel Island whaling, pre-1900 fur trading, the post-World War II resource boom, a lengthy struggle for responsible government, and the emergence of Aboriginal political protest remain poorly understood. Placing well-known historical episodes within the broader sweep of the past, Land of the Midnight Sun gives particular emphasis to the role of First Nations people and the lengthy struggle of Yukoners to find their place within Confederation. This broader story incorporates the introduction of mammoth dredges that scoured the Klondike creeks, the impressive Elsa-Keno Hill silver mines, the impact of residential schools on Aboriginal children, the devastation caused by the sinking of the Princess Sophia, the Yukon's remarkable contributions to the national World War I effort, and the sweeping transformations associated with the American occupation during World War II. Completely revised with a new epilogue, the bestselling Land of the Midnight Sun was first published in 1988 and became the standard source for understanding the history of the Yukon. Ken Coates and William Morrison have published ten books together, including Strange Things Done: A History of Murder in the Yukon and the forthcoming Trailmarkers: A History of Landmark Aboriginal Rights Cases in Canada. Land of the Midnight Sun was their first collaboration.

In the Shadow of the Midnight Sun Book Review:

This is the first extensive anthology of contemporary Sami literature in English. The Sami are the indigenous people inhabiting Northern Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia's Kola Peninsula. Twenty-one authors from all four countries are represented with poetry, short stories and excerpts from novels. Many of the authors are award-winners, and some have been included in Nordic and international collections. The readers will be introduced to a variety of themes and experiences, from wolves attacking a reindeer herd to river boat rafting and the making of a shaman drum, from the most tender love poems in Arctic surroundings to the bitter realities in the everyday life of a suppressed minority. The text reflects Sami resilience and selfhood, and expresses the Sami's own perspective on their struggle to preserve traditional values in modern society -- from back cover.

Children of the Midnight Sun Book Review:

Children of the Midnight Sun was chosen as one of Parenting Magazine's 1998 Books of the Year and School Library Journal's Best Books of 1998. For Native children, growing up in Alaska today means dwelling in a place where traditional practices sometimes mix oddly with modern conveniences. Children of the Midnight Sun explores the lives of eight Alaskan Native children, each representing a unique and ancient culture. This extraordinary book also looks at the critical role elders play in teaching the young Native traditions. Photographs and text present the experiences and way of life of Tlingit, Athabascan, Yup'ik, and other Native American children in the villages, cities, and Bush areas of Alaska.

The Siesta and the Midnight Sun Book Review:

When a retiring worker is given a gold watch, Jessa Gamble observes, she symbolically gets back the freedom to keep her own hours. There were no mechanical timepieces before the industrial revolution. The day’s activities were dictated by the spinning Earth’s circuit around the Sun and by the seasons. Because people adjusted their lives to these natural rhythms, they may have experienced less stress than their modern counterparts. They almost certainly enjoyed more sleep. In The Siesta and the Midnight Sun, award-winning science writer Jessa Gamble explores the continuing significance of the biological clocks that governed our lives before modern technology annihilated the night. She describes experiments that show both rats and people adhere to a 24-hour schedule even when deprived of daylight. When our days are disrupted by shift work, jet lag or space travel, things go wrong. The disastrous chemical leak at Bhopal, India and the calamitous launch of the Space Shuttle Challenger both were caused partly by sleepless workers. Insomnia is rampant in the Western world. By investigating patterns of behaviour in many societies both past and current, Gamble gives us a glimpse of different ways of scheduling time. In this superbly insightful and entertaining book she examines the crises and creative adaptations that occur on the embattled border where biology, culture and technology clash.

A Skyhook in the Midnight Sun Book Review:

When Caz Hewson chucks in her London life and moves north, she isn't sure what to expect. From her council flat in Galleon Heights on the edge of Newcastle, riding high above the desolate urban landscapes of post -Thatcherite Britain, she discovers to her surprise a warm community and a living history that help her come to terms with the tragedy of her past. Fiona Cooper boldly incorporates elements of fairy tale and legend into her portrayal of Britain in the 90s to produce a novel that is complex as well as comic, savage but full of sympathy.

The Midnight Sun Book Review:

Earth has become almost uninhabitable when 24 hours of continuous sunlight causes the thermometer to creep towards 140 degrees. In New York City, Norma and her landlady, Mrs Bronson, are the last people in their building, the rest having moved north where it is cooler. Trying to keep each other company as electricity is rationed and food and water become even more scarce, survival seems impossible. It is only a matter of time before humans can no longer exist in the unbearable heat. Then Norma wakes from her fever-induced dream to find that earth is actually freezing over. Hot or cold, is earth really doomed?

Midnight Sun Book Review:

KAATJE JANSSEN--Desperate to know if her missing husband still lives, Kaatje hires the rugged, yet tenderhearted James Walker to guide her through the perils of the Alaskan wilderness. What she finally discovers, however, is far from what she expected--and could well place her in the greatest danger of her life. ELSA RAMSTAD--As captain of the Majestic and mother of Kristian and Eve, Elsa has sought to ease the ache of her lonely heart. Forever changed by loss, she accepts her fate of solitude. But when an old friend rekindles the spark of romance within her, will she allow the flames of love to burn again? TORA ANDERS--Her foolish youth behind her, Tora looks forward to her wedding and a fresh start in life as the wife of her beloved, Trent Storm. But first she must confront, face-to-face, the terrible demons of her past--and her struggle to forgive the man who radically altered her future. KARL MARTENSEN--Though he is widely admired, Captain Karl Martensen feels no depth of emotion for any of the women with whom his life becomes uncomfortably entangled. He has only tender memories of the love he once lost--a love that, by the grace of God, he just may find again. From the fierce Alaskan wilderness to the gaiety of San Francisco society; the familiar peaks of Bergen, Norway, to the dark, churning waters of Cape Horn; witness the glorious conclusion of the Northern Lights family saga as four long-time friends journey out of the shadow of their darkest days into the bright future awaiting them in the land of the Midnight Sun.

Midnight Sun Book Review:

This book was born from an idyllic love of youth. An honest love filled with firsts and dripping in honeyed romantic cliché; but if it was born in innocence – The sublimity was forged in the stark reality of loss, the hollow sound of a lonely apartment and the fragments of shattered glass. These are my words, may each page gently breathe life into the wistful dreams of anyone who has ever had the courage to rise up and open their heart once again.

Stories of the Midnight Sun Book Review:

An excerpt from Stories of the Midnight Sun Tom moved to take the lead and Father Michael followed, nearly at his side. They cautiously moved down the slope under the shadow of bare trees whose branches rose above them like the hands of desperate petitioners imploring the moon. The footprints were closer together, and it appeared to Tom as if the left leg of the woman had been somehow injured, for it drug in the snow. He was surprised not to find a trail of blood. No blood. No blood. It seemed so odd to him. The whole night seemed steeped in a dream, a nonsensical play that had no rhyme or reason. What had happened to the woman? Why had she not simply rung the doorbell? Why had she turned away from the barn? Why run into the night, away from warmth and safety? Why didn't she answer their calls? And why, for all that was holy, did she turn down this darkened path out of the meager light of the moon toward the cold depths where the Old Maid ran like an artery through the heart of the ancient prairie? It made Tom angry. It made him scared. He began swearing at regular intervals under his breath.

Midnight Sun Book Review:

A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING BELLA THORNE! A heartbreaking tale of love, loss and one nearly perfect summer -- perfect for fans of The Fault In Our Stars and Love, Simon. Seventeen-year-old Katie Price has a rare disease that makes exposure to even the smallest amount of sunlight deadly. Confined to her house during the day, her company is limited to her widowed father and her best (okay, only) friend. It isn't until after nightfall that Katie's world opens up, when she takes her guitar to the local train station and plays for the people coming and going. Charlie Reed is a former all-star athlete at a crossroads in his life - and the boy Katie has secretly admired from afar for years. When he happens upon her playing guitar one night, fate intervenes and the two embark on a star-crossed romance. As they challenge each other to chase their dreams and fall for each other under the summer night sky, Katie and Charlie form a bond strong enough to change them -- and everyone around them -- forever.

The Midnight Sun Book Review:

From the acclaimed author of Wolf Winter comes a new historical crime novel with all the intrigue and atmosphere of Burial Rites and the suspense of The Tenderness of Wolves. Taking place a hundred years after the shocking events of Wolf Winter in the same haunting territory, In the Month of the Midnight Sun is set in high summer, under the searing light of a sun that never quite sets. Sweden, 1855. “Worst thing I ever saw...” The Minister of Justice has received a disturbing message. There’s been a massacre on one of Lapland's mountains: a priest, a law enforcement officer, and a local settler have been slaughtered by one of the indigenous Sami people. The murderer is in custody, but he refuses to talk. The Minister dispatches his son-in-law, a geologist, to investigate, as there is another reason to visit Blackåsen: it is a mountain with many secrets, a mountain whose rich mineral deposits have never been exploited. But Magnus does not journey alone. The Minister’s daughter, in disgrace, is sent with him. The two unlikely companions venture out of the sweltering city to the wild landscape of Sweden’s far north under the strange, insomnia-inducing light of the midnight sun. There, the shocking truth they discover about the murders and what lies behind them will only be matched by what they discover about themselves. For Lovisa and Magnus—and for the people of Blackåsen—nothing will ever be the same again. In The Month of the Midnight Sun tells a riveting story of the collision of worlds old and new, and cements Ekbäck’s status as a master of Nordic noir.
