He was born to a reindeer herding family, but left to become an artist. The breathtaking drawings and the dazzling jacket and endpapers are his. . . . The drawings often continue seamlessly over the edges of the pages, so that a single line across a double page turns, as the page turns, to a horizon line, following the lines of the poetry. . . . It is clearly, very clearly, lyrical, expressing an organic relation to the natural world.--The Beloit Poetry JournalHis poems rise directly from the Yoik tradition, at once intimately personal, traditional and evocative of a huge landscape.--W.
