This Land of Snow with Anders Morley

Monday, October 18, 2021


This Land of Snow: a Journey Across the North in Winter by Anders Morley

Every journey begins with a single step, or in Anders Morley's case , the shush of cross-country skis.


This Land of Snow tells the story of that journey and of a man who must come to terms with the consequences of living by nostalgia. It is an honest, thoughtful, and sometimes humorous reckoning of an adventure filled with adrenaline and exuberance, as well as mistakes and danger. Both a celebration of a season and a portrait of a place, the book affords readers fascinating and insightful glimpses into life at the edge of the great northern wilderness, the history of cold weather exploration and nordic skiing, the right-to-roam movement, winter ecology, and more. Throughout, Morley’s clear, subtle, and self-deprecating voice speaks to a backwoods-genteel aesthetic that explores the territory between wildness and refinement, language and personal story, journey and home.

Anders Morley

A dual-citizen of the US and Canada, Anders Morley grew up in New Hampshire and began skiing at age five.  After earning a master's degree from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, he settled in Italy where he worked as a translator and English teacher, and explored the Alps in his free time. He contributes regularly to New Hampshire magazine and his work has appeared in a variety of other publications including The Globe and Mail, Northern Woodlands magazine, Maisonneuve magazine, and The Aurorean. Morley lives in northern New Hampshire.
