What a great historical novel about the first colonists settling in Alaska . Great and courageous people settling an untamed and beautiful land. They had real struggles with the few residents already there as well as impossible weather to learn how to exist and make a backbreaking living . These were true pioneers . I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Highly Recommend !
