I chose this book first because of the area the book took place and second because it was a survival novel. I was not disappointed! The 3 main characters were believable. The hero never gave up. The book is 437 pages and it took me two nughts to read way into the wee hrs! Could not put it down. It had adventure, suspence, plot twists, good explaining of the territory, good character development, was sad in parts, and a good ending. GREAT JOB AUTHOR! I highly recommend this book for everyone. You wob't be disappointed. Vallie

The story is interesting, especially learning more about Alaska. Johnson's downfall in this book is lackluster proofreading & editing. I'm surprised it got published without more scrutiny by the publisher. Lots of books, especially ebooks, have typos. This one has typos, words missing, verb agreement problems, but most critical is lack of believability when sad times come--the emotion just isn't there. And then there's the continuity problems; ie, one moment the critically injured are laid up in the wild, but the next paragraph they are out helping cart stuff to the camp, then they're laid up again. But thank you B&N for the free book. It was good enough to finish.

I did not enjoy this story. The author throws in details late in the story in order to make up coming parts work. Does not allow his parent characters to visit any realistic emotion about the death of a child yet repeatedly mourns the loss of a friend who in the begining of the story isnt nearly as close a friend as he and his wife are by the end. Inconsistent. Outrageously unbelievable at nearly every turn. Not because the story is exceptionly imaginative but because it isnt. Nothing flows. Its like a b movie.
