Praise for the Nathan Active series
"Robust.... Active maintains his awe of the vast Alaskan tundra, a forbidding region that Jones renders in all its bone-chilling beauty."
—The New York Times Book Review
"Trroper Active proves such an interesting and likable guide that the selfish reader can't but hope Nathan won't get that Anchorage transfer for at least a few more books."
—Wall Street Journal
"Jones captures in precise detail... the starkly individual spirit of thi village's collection of characters....His depiction of a freezing world of tarpaper houses and whaling camps is absolutely convincing."
