Serapio Ittusardjuat recounts the traditional skills and knowledge he leaned on to stay alive after his snowmobile broke down halfway across the sea ice on a trip home from a fishing camp.

This harrowing first-person account of four nights spent on the open sea ice—with few supplies and no water—shows young readers the determination and strength necessary to survive in the harsh Arctic climate, even when the worst occurs.
