A tale of struggle with all the trials and successes and failures of unique lives. It draws you into the time and place and people.
You will never think of Alaska in the same way again after you read this important narrative.
It turns out today that most Native Alaskans are Russian Orthodox Church. Baranov worked with Father Herman (now Saint Herman of Alaska) and setup schools, churches and more around Alaska. Seiler tells many stories of his encounters with the Native Alaskans, both friends and enemies that provide insight into the rugged life of Alaska in the 1800s. Romance, humor, and adventure punctuate the novel with spirited dialogue and descriptive passages.
A great read that corresponds with 2017 and Alaska's 150 birthday of becoming a territory and a state of the United States. Recommended. I listened to Roger Seiler, the author read passages at Lady Jane's Salon in New York City, NY. Shot a brief video, too. Enjoy.
