Another mesmerizing episode from the universe of His Dark Materials set in the far frozen Arctic, including the very first meeting of those two legends and friends Lee Scoresby, the Texan balloonist, and Iorek Byrnison, the armored bear.

The meeting of the Texas and the Bear.
I so appreciated this story of how they met.
As always, his writing is wonderful.
The bit about the rifle 35 years later brought tears to my eyes.
