Overview

In Kim Heacox's suspenseful debut novel, Shannon DeShay, a young woman from Alaska discovers a militant plot to destroy an environmental movement and must risk everything to save a wildlife refuge and the man she loves. At the nexus is a real issue: attempts by the petroleum industry—-and most of Alaska’s political and business leaders —-to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. From Anchorage and Alaska’s North Slope to Washington D.C. and the halls of Congress, this is a compelling story of intrigue, landscape, and love.

What People are saying about this

Jonathan Waterman
This book is superb in many ways, refreshingly original, well-plotted, with interesting characters who are richly imagined. Caribou Crossing is our new Monkey Wrench Gang, and Kim Heacox our northern Edward Abbey.— author of Arctic Crossing and In the Shadow of Denali
Bill McKibben
A novel doesn't get much closer to the headlines than this one-or much closer to the truth about what counts in this economy. Kim Heacox provides a great read-and a great service-in this fine book.— author of The End of Nature and Maybe One
