"Alaska makes everything ordinary impossible to bear."
"The stories are gripping in the way the best adventure writing is, with enough danger and discovery to keep the reader turning pages way past bedtime. ... Indeed, the real protagonist is Alaska itself, which 'makes everything ordinary impossible to bear.' Thanks to C.B. Bernard's assured storytelling and vibrant prose style, we understand that sentiment very well." —Peter Geye, Minneapolis Star Tribune
“The author is an excellent writer… His sense of humor and clever words keep us fascinated, not to mention
laughing. Overall, the purchase of two copies is recommended. You will likely wear out the first one."
—Reviewer Dee Longenbaugh
"Bernard’s stories are so vivid you can feel the bear breathing down your neck. He crafts his sentences
to be so lean he is like the hunter who never wastes a part of the deer he kills. In his work you will find
not only a great story, but a great writer with a generous heart."
—Poet and Novelist Kate Gray ("Carry the Sky")
