John Straley pulls you through this exciting story on a golden rope tethered to descriptive poetry. The characters are alive with flaws,ambitions and questionable human decision making.If you are drawn to the "wild" in place and humans you will be drawn to Cecil who presents a real picture of Alaska and the individuals who live and work there. I also loved the natural portrayal and inclusion of native peoples. Wrap this up in a carefully crafted thriller and you have a WINNER.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
