Alaska, 1974. Untamed. Unpredictable. And for a family in crisis, the ultimate test of the human spirit. Amid a world in political turmoil, Ernt Allbright, a Vietnam vet and former POW, suffers from what we now call PTSD. His volatile nature and violent temper make it hard to hold down a job. When a friend he served with leaves him a cabin in a remote part of Alaska, he uproots his apprehensive wife and daughter and heads north with the promise that living off the land in the spectacular wilderness will solve his – their – problems. A huge book that will take you away … but you might run screaming back! An irresistible read.
