Northern Lights Frozen Nights

His Technicolor descriptions of North America's most spectacular game land captivated the imagination of anyone lucky enough to read them. Author Jeff Davis spent two years researching the life and times of Russell Annabel.

Northern Lights  Frozen Nights

Russell Annabel was best known for his Alaskan action-adventure tales. In 1920, at the tender age of 15, he left his family in Washington State and boarded a steamer for Alaska. Over the next 35 years he trapped, prospected, hunted and fished this great land, frequently in the company of venerable old Tex Cobb, the sourdough that taught him wilderness survival. When Rusty died in 1979, he left behind a permanent record of his adventures, something few illiterate prospectors or sourdoughs were capable of. His Technicolor descriptions of North America's most spectacular game land captivated the imagination of anyone lucky enough to read them. Author Jeff Davis spent two years researching the life and times of Russell Annabel. In 1998, a startling discovery was made: old, dusty boxes that contained Rusty's Alaskan files. Stored in a friend's garage in Anchorage, those old stories, newspaper clippings and notes for future stories had been collecting dust for half a century. Organizing the notes and outlines became an intriguing challenge. If enough material could be pieced together to form another Annabel tale, this would be the first unpublished Annabel material to appear in print in two decades. Amazingly, not one, but ten complete stories were pieced together, ranging from pure Annabel outdoor tales to WWII stories that came out of his war correspondent experience.

The Northern Light

There are other poets who have depicted this ability of the northern light to lead the mind towards infinite space. Jan Magnus Bruheim touched upon this in his poem In an auroral night, from his anthology The Letter to Love (1977).

The Northern Light

In Nordic literature a remarkable discussion of the northern light appears in Kongespeilet (The King's Mirror) a thirteenth-century Norwegian chronicle. It is described in vivid detail as the following translated excerpts demonstrate: These northern lights have this peculiar nature, that the darker the night is, the brighter they seem, and they always appear at night but never by day, most frequently in the densest darkness and rarely by moonlight. In appearance they resemble a vast flame of fire viewed from a great distance. It also looks as if sharp points were shot from this flame up into the sky; these are of uneven height and in constant motion, now one, now another darting highest; and the light appears to blaze like a living flame. Three different theories for the origin of the northern light were suggested in this book. Numerous naturally occurring heavenly phenomena have been observed and enjoyed as long as the Earth has been inhabited, but hardly any of them has stirred man's imagination, curiosity and fear as much as the northern light. The northern light is certainly one of the most spectacular of nature's phenomena.

Arctic Discourses

Both fictional and non-fictional accounts of the Arctic have long been a major source of powerful images of the region, and have thus had a crucial part to play in the history of human activities there. This volume provides a wide-reaching investigation into the discourses involved in such accounts, above all into the consolidation of a discourse of “Arcticism” (modelled on Edward Said’s concept of “Orientalism”), but also into the many intersecting discourses of imperialism, nationalism, masculinity, modernity, geography, science, race, ecology, indigeneity, aesthetics, etc. Perspectives originating from inside and outside the Arctic, along with hybrid positions, are examined, with special attention being given to the textual genres, narratives and figures which they mobilize, together with to the close relationship between the Arctic as an unknown place and the literary imagination. The different chapters address a wide geographical range of texts, providing a necessary supplement to most previous work in the field, and also address the wide variety of genres which flourish under the aegis of Arctic discourse, ranging from exploration accounts, travel-writing, political texts and journalism through diaries and historical documents to novels and novelizations, and including also other media, such as music and opera.

Northern Lights

It was past midnight in Norway when Dante awoke to find his wife Hannah standing by the bedroom window.

The freakish red tornado that touched down in the small town of Fredrikstad on this particular evening; brought with it much more than just a delightful display from the Aurora Borealis. Follow the story of Hannah and Dante as they become chosen by the forerunners to save as many people as they can from the horror that awaits them. Mutations now walk the planet under the emerald colored sky as the battle between good and evil ensues, who will prevail in this story of love and disaster? Editor’s comments: The pleasure of this novel is that it is vividly imagined. The reader senses that the writer is really seeing the things he is describing. That’s no small feat. He also has a good instinct for pacing and maintaining suspense. “This book was so good that I got to within 15 pages of the end of the book and decided I didn’t want it to end, so I started from the beginning and read it a second time just to prolong the ending.”

Northern Lights in the Chugach

NORTHERN. LIGHTS. The cold on my face wakes me in the night and I pull my bag up to over my nose. The sky has changed, and a ribbon of light ... Instantly the lights come to mind, and I pause to feel that frozen image stored in my mind.

Northern Lights in the Chugach

My hunt for a Dall ram in the Chugach Mountains of Alaska became an epic adventure and stretched me beyond my limits, or so I thought. High on the rocky face of a steep mountainside, I found myself both physically and mentally spent. Exhaustion and confusion are a dangerous combination in a spot like that. Sweat stung my eyes and ran off my nose. My heartbeat pulsed in my ears and my arms and legs were limp with fatigue. I reached deep for a little more grit and climbed on. At the top of the next pitch I found a flat section of grass about the length of my body, an oasis and a reprieve from the misery. Life altering epiphanies come at a price. Amid the northern nights in the Chugach Mountains I found a bigger world than I'd ever known.

Metamorphoses of Light

The northern lights occur mainly at night. The time of their maximum occurrence changes according to one's geographic location. `The periods of geomagnetic activity are reflected in the occurrence of northern lights.

Metamorphoses of Light

‘Goethe called colour the deeds and sufferings of the light – victorious deeds when it pierces matter, and suffering when it endures the darkness in matter. Indeed, there is no greater contrast in the whole cosmos than that between matter and light.’ Having spent time in the Arctic Circle in Lapland – where, with the sky filled in a flood of colour, the midnight sun shines for weeks, and the long polar night is brightened by the shining northern lights – the author was left with unforgettable memories. Thinking through these experiences led to this short but penetrating work, a study of the pathways and metamorphoses of light from a global perspective. The essence of light is to shine – it rays out dynamically in all directions at an unimaginable speed, never resting. The nature of matter, in contrast, is heavy, static and condensed. But matter can also let light through, as with crystal, or in the transparent and flowing element of water, evaporation and even air. Water and air thus act as ‘mercurial’ factors, allowing the creative potential of light to appear in a diversity of colours. The ‘deeds and sufferings of light’ are further to be found in many phenomena of the inorganic world such as the northern lights. By seeing the laws within phenomena, Goethe approached an understanding of the etheric formative forces. The object of this book is the observation of nature’s natural wonders using Goethe’s methodical process. Apart from the rainbows, lightning and northern lights in the title, the author discusses the blue of the sky, the colours of twilight and the dewdrop, and halos and other light phenomena. The power of imagination produced by the observer creates depth and inwardness, says the author. In such a state of consciousness, one’s inner eye can picture ‘a threefold global union of light, which speaks to a threefold organization of the Earth’. Bühler’s concentrated work will inspire readers to make their own observations of the optical phenomena in our atmosphere, learning anew to treasure our planet for what it is – a human-scale home for which we are all responsible.
