Dad didn't talk about this trip much and it wasn't until after his death that I found his photographs and account of his trip up to Mount Deception. That is a whole other story for another time and place.
I can't really comment on writing style or other technicalities because this story was so personal for me. I do know from my own research into this event that it is a piece of Alaskan history, WW2 history and Mountaineering legend. I guess no one will ever know for sure what happened that day in 1944, but this book was certainly an interesting theory about what happened and intimate look at one family's struggle to find understanding and peace about those events that happened so long ago.
The villages in the Arctic now have runways rather than dirt or grass strips or no strips at all. Just flat places to land a plane.
The mountains are pretty well described, like Mt. McKinley and the Lake Minchumina area of the crash. A very good read and I would certainly recommend it.
