When the first Europeans set out to conquer the northern limits, they were genuinely surprised that they seemed quite wild and unimaginable for the country inhabited by people. Moreover, the people who live among the ice for thousands of years, in general, not troubled by learning how to exist in harmony with the environment, which the Europeans seemed unnatural.

And they were wonderful helpers - dogs. Northern dog - is a hunter, and Read more [...]

Today, April 4. The eleventh day of his hunger strike. Preparing for the hunt is over, but the body is exhausted. Weaker by the hour. Today I have to get the fish. Hardly saw a pack of fish, how to stop feeling cold. Knitted woolen pants and a sweater slightly delayed warmed body water, but I'm shaking badly. Jumping the gun in his hand, like a machine gun. Small fish scurry around. That's similar to our red-white-sided krasnoperok fish - barbel. They then hide in the reeds, then swim in the clear water. Brushes spinning at the mask itself, twirl menacingly Read more [...]

Just fire penetrates deep down, diluted with pine roots. In such places, the fire is not recommended to breed. But if the choice is limited, it should raise a layer of gravel, rocks Read more [...]
