Editorial Reviews


Libary Journal (Starred Review) – "A splendid, unique gem of a novel." –Nicole R. Steeves, Chicago Public Library

“Kim Heacox’s love for the land and people of Southeast Alaska shines forth in this character-driven saga, brimming with craft, humor, and deft turn of phrase. Jimmy Bluefeather easily makes the short list for the great Alaska novel.” –Nick Jans, author of A Wolf Called Romeo

Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review) – "Part quest, part rebirth, Heacox's debut novel spins a story of Alaska's Tlingit people and the land, an old man dying, and a young man learning to live."

“Every page glistens with authentic genius born from Kim Heacox’s wise and deep-rooted sense of place. . . The characters seem like people we’ve known; they ring true, and feel vivid.” ―Carl Safina, author of Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel

"A convergence of ocean, land, and spirit as only Kim Heacox can tell it, with wisdom, humor, and grace. A welcome new novel of relationships, forgiveness, and re-inventing oneself." –Deb Vanasse, author of Cold Spell and Under Alaska's Midnight Sun

Booklist "Heacox does a superb job of transcending his characters’ unique geography to create a heartwarming, all-American story."

"A superb addition to Alaska―indeed, American―literature" –Nancy Lord, former Alaska State Writer Laureate and author of Early Warming

"The force that drives Jimmy Bluefeather is the figure of Old Keb Wisting, the last canoe carver in his Alaskan Indian village. Keb is a powerfully drawn portrait of an indomitable spirit facing down his own death--with fierce determination, blasting a Tlingit song into the cold wind blowing off the glaciers. This is not just a well-crafted picture of an elder; it is unforgettable, in the direct lineage of The Old Man and the Sea." –Doug Peacock, author of In the Shadow of the Sabertooth; Global Warming, The Origins of the First Americans, and The Terrible Beasts of the Pleistocene

Heacox, a writer and explorer of renown, offers a genuine, funny and tender portrait that is rare in the literature of the 49th state." –Andromeda Romano-Lax, author of The Spanish Bow, The Detour, and Behave

"A masterful work of fiction. . . .A book to be savored." –Bob Osborne, Northern Passages
