Forty Days without Shadow

Published by: Little, Brown

This unusual first novel transplants its readers to what was once called Lapland in the far north of Sweden and Norway. It is moving in its urgent illumination of Sami culture under rapid environmental change and external influences which increasingly threaten their vanishing ways of life not least through the greed and corruption which encourage irreversible pollution in the search for rare metals.
