⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ What a beautiful, fantastic book! Everything Ivey wrote felt real, to the point where I Googled the characters just to make sure this was purely fiction. You feel their love, pain, and exhaustion. You can see the landscape of wilderness Alaska and the Native people they encounter. The book is all told through letters, diary entries, & photographs, and I loved every minute of reading it. Highly recommend!
