Product description


"Original and compelling."--Anchorage Daily News

"[Jamey] Bradbury cultivates vivid atmosphere with visceral action and a dynamic cast of characters...readers who like earthy, genre-blending, coming-of-age stories should be pleased."--Booklist

"[Jamey] Bradbury has written a lovely and intense novel about the precarious balance of life and death, what it means to be human and fragile in a hostile environment, and, perhaps, what it means to be something other than entirely human."--Library Journal (starred review)

"A unique take on rural noir."--Publishers Weekly

"A taut, atmospheric thriller...Jamey Bradbury has crafted a stunning debut full of secrets and hunger, grief and longing. Like the cold of an Alaskan winter, this book chilled me and wrapped me in quiet dread."--Jennifer McMahon

"A uniquely American coming-of-age tale set on the Alaskan frontier where the borderlines between civilization and savagery...become blurred...A remarkable fable of growing up in the new world."--Joshua Gaylord, author of When We Were Animals

"An unusual love story and a creepy horror novel -- think of the Brontë sisters and Stephen King...The architecture of the storytelling is faultless."--John Irving

From the Back Cover

In Alaska, the winters are long and dark, the land untamed. Tracy Petrikoff has always loved her family's remote home and her parents' business training and racing sled dogs. It seemed only a matter of time before Tracy's father won the Iditarod--and perhaps, not too long after, Tracy herself would win.

But now everything is different. With the death of Tracy's mother the year before, the family is mired in grief and struggling to keep the business alive. When a stranger knocks Tracy unconscious in the woods, she does not tell her father. She does not want to give him another reason to worry. But shortly thereafter, another stranger emerges from the woods, looking for a job, and Tracy's omission becomes the first strand in a web drawing tightly over her family. Now the isolation Tracy has always valued in her home has begun to seem like a threat, and Tracy must decide what she will do to protect those she loves best.
