Intensely intimate and totally individual, it is a story of events ordered by snow, ice, wind, cold, and the necessity to survive.In 1928 Cornelius Osgood journeyed to the Far North as an ethnographer for the Canadian government.

While his scientific mission to study the lesser-known tribes of the Athapaskan peoples was a failure, the solitude of an isolated Arctic winter had a lasting effect on the writer. In Winter, Osgood articulates the impact of an environment defined by the lovely loneliness of limitless land and sky, of snow and trees, and the truths of nature crystallized within it.
