Aramilev "brings vividly before his readers the mysterious, unspoiled and very beautiful world of the taiga - that wilderness of forest, river and mountain that covers so much of Siberia even today. His descriptions of hunting bear, tiger, wolf, sable, fox, squirrel, capercailzie, duck, goose and much other game, are full of humour as well as suspense; and not the least moving are the stories of the dogs that kept him company on his many adventures" (dust jacket).
