The 60th parallel crosses through lower Finland, Sweden and Norway, Greenland’s tip, Alaska’s southern coast and cuts across Russia and Canada as well as the Shetland Islands, where Malachy Tallack has lived his entire life. After his father dies and his dissatisfaction with his homeland reaches new heights, the author journeys westward along the northern latitude. Along the way he tackles larger themes of isolation, wildness and exile while considering the relationship between the people and their land and confronting his own feelings about home.
