Shopping for Porcupine is a fascinating account of life on North America's last frontier written by Northwest Arctic Alaskan author Seth Kantner.

"My memory begins under snow," he writes, recalling his early and longstanding respect for the old Inupiaq ways, cold nights on caribou hides, swimming in the ice floes for wounded waterfowl, and fur-clad travelers stopping with their dog teams for visits. Bracing and humorous, perceptive and profoundly illuminating, this extraordinary collection of writing and photographs offers an ode to respect-that oft-forsaken, unromantic quality-for the land, for animals, and for "something as virtuous as gathering food."
