“Few novels so successfully combine a
compelling story with such fascinating historical detail.”
-Elliott Bay Book Company
“A muscular tale of Alaska and the Midwest, with a compelling
heroine, a love story, a 'villain' you can't quite hate, and great
historical detail about the 'other' Gold Rush. A book that works for
readers of both genders."
-Book Sense, Lilla Weinberger, Readers' Books, Sonoma, CA
