I wasn't expecting much when I selected this book for reading. The story starts off on a vessel headed for Alaska. The main characters are introduced early on and are developed throughout the entire story. Each character has a purpose that you may sense early on, but a reasonably smart person can expect to be surprised by some of the twists and turns presented in the pages of the book.
The author successfully mixes romance, adventure, and a little bit of mystery into this scenic trip into the wilds of the Alaskan frontier.

The heroine is spunky but co-dependent, the hero is stoic as a matter of habit and 'policy' and the villains are vile. I found the book amusing on several levels. The author is very in love with the Alaskan wilderness, but I'm not sure how he avoided the hordes of mosquitoes in the far north without more generously commenting on them. I lived there for almost two decades. Mosquitoes are an important character in your life story there, especially after "break up.
The hero was annoying - a cardboard guy who along with the heroine illustrated the social and sexual attitudes and understanding of the post Victorian era.

Reading this book takes you to the heart of the issue. That said, I did manage to read the whole thing and enjoyed the period details about then current technology and tools. Author writes about love and people to make you want to be in Alaska wonderful descriptions of the country and the characters. Another Great Story by Curwood with a good story that is hard to put down.
Many surprises that keep you wanting to know what is going to happen next. I could tell by reading this book that part of its purpose was to change the perception of Alaska in the rest of the United States, and it did that for me. For the first time, I found myself wanting to visit there. Refresh and try again. Open Preview See a Problem? Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page.
