    Synopsis: "A Dream in Polar Fog is the story of John MacLennan, a Canadian sailor who is left behind by his ship, stranded on the northeastern tip of Siberia. The native Siberian community adopts the wounded stranger and teaches him to live as a true human being. Over time, John comes to know his new companions as real people who share the best and worst of human traits with his own kind. Rytkheu's empathy, humour and provocative voice guide the reader across the magnificent landscape of the North and reveal all the complexity and beauty of a vanishing world."
