". . . when Groome tests his characters, human and animal, against the wilderness, he moves us with the harshness and beauty of an uncivilized world. The result is a gripping portrait of life stripped to the bare essentials."
"Harry Groome writes the sort of vivid, sensory prose that allows the reader to see through the language as through a window into the world he describes. He writes about the old verities, and he does it with grace, humanity, and even beauty."
"Absolutely brilliant. I love this novel."
