Summary

In June 1994, Alvah Simon and his wife, Diana, set off in their 36-foot sailboat to explore the hauntingly beautiful world of icebergs, tundra, and fjords lying high above the Arctic Circle. Four months later, unexpected events would trap Simon alone on his boat, frozen in ice 100 miles from the nearest settlement, with the long polar night stretching into darkness for months to come.
With his world circumscribed by screaming blizzards and marauding polar bears and his only companion a kitten named Halifax, Simon withstands months of crushing loneliness, sudden blindness, and private demons. Trapped in a boat buried beneath the drifting snow, he struggles through the perpetual darkness toward a spiritual awakening and an understanding of the forces that conspired to bring him there. He emerges five months later a transformed man.
Simon's powerful, triumphant story combines the suspense of Into Thin Air with a crystalline, lyrical prose to explore the hypnotic draw of one of Earth's deepest and most dangerous wildernesses.

A masterpiece, beautifully told

I'm so glad Alvah Simon's masterpiece NORTH TO THE NIGHT is finally available as an audiobook. Robert Brown does a splendid job of narrating Simon's riveting tale of his time in the arctic twilight. Love it. Highly recommended.

Powerful

Great story. Writer tells his journey with honesty. Only one detail did not feel true. But who am I to judge after he bared his soul with such abandon ? Well done. Great insights into the dark night of the soul.
