When Ernt Allbright, who has been scarred physically and psychologically by his time in Vietnam, learns he has inherited land in Alaska, he sees it as a place to begin again. Cora and Leni, his wife and daughter, soon come to learn how unprepared they are for homesteading and the Alaskan winter, especially when the dangers outdoors are less imminent than those indoors. This evocative and heartbreaking novel will carry you to the wild glories of Alaska and immerse you in the northern frontier. Bring a few tissues.
