About Raffan's book

In Circling the Midnight Sun, James Raffan presents a warm-hearted, engaging portrait of the circumpolar world, but also a deeply affecting story of societies and landscapes in the throes of enormous change. Compelling and utterly original, this is both an adventure story and a book that will transform the way we think about northerners and the north.
Chosen by the Globe and Mail as one of the best books of 2014, Circling the Midnight Sun has received much acclaim.
