The author recounts his experiences traveling from Norway to Newfoundland via the Faeroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland, and Labrador

Last Places is Lawrence Millman's account of his journey along the ancient Viking sea routes that extend from Norway to Newfoundland. Traveling through landscapes of transcendent desolation, Millman wandered by way of the Shetland Islands, the Faeroes, Iceland, Greenland, and Labrador. His trip was marked by surprising human encounters - with a convicted murderer in Reykjavik, an Inuit hermit in Greenland, an Icelandic guide who leads him to a place called Hell, and a Newfoundlander who warns him about the local variant of the Abominable Snowman. By turns earthy and lyrical, Last Places is an ebullient celebration of the exotic North.
