The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
After reading The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah, I am intrigued by the landscape and lifestyle found in Alaska. The wild beauty of this last frontier comes through with exquisite clarity. The rugged realism, profoundly protrayed through the characters, reveals survival instincts after the trauma of the Vietnam War and the terror of an unforgiving land. I'm not sure I would survive under such conditions, but I am better for literary journey.
