This was a super interesting historical fiction book! I think the events in the book seemed so real because it was based on actual expeditions to Alaska.
It's written by the author of The Snow Child, and I really enjoyed the writing of that one. And this had a similar magical realism kind of feel to it.
(excuse the bargain sticker; it started ripping the cover when I tried peeling it off 🙃)
