About the Book

This is the tale of a young woman who embarks on an exciting expedition full of serendipitous happenings. She solves a mystery, meets a lot of new people, and aids her father in deceiving his adversary. A young woman sets off on her own into the wilderness of Alaska at the beginning of this tale in an effort to flee her traumatic past. The story then moves on to a young guy who fiercely defends the people, the culture, and the way of life in this snowbound nation. Finally, the story introduces a rapacious profiteer whose sole concern is to line his own pockets. The moment these three people cross paths on the desolate, snow-covered plains, there is a clash of ideologies and sparks start to fly. James Oliver Curwood The Alaskan, one of his very engrossing adventure romance conservationist tales, was an instant bestseller when it was originally released in 1923. When he visited Alaska for an article, he fell in love with the state and made the decision to go there once he had enough money. He kept up his writing and made frequent trips to his ideal location.

About Author

James Oliver Curwood

James Oliver Curwood was an American action-adventure author and conservationist who lived from June 12, 1878, until August 13, 1927. His stories frequently occurred in Yukon, Alaska, or the Hudson Bay region. In the early and middle 1920s, they frequently appeared in the top 10 best sellers in the US. Curwood was the most-paid author in the world (per word) at the time of his death. Curwood attended the University of Michigan after being born in Owosso, Michigan. He sold his first story in 1898 when he was a college student. He was employed by the Canadian government in 1907 to produce and publish travelogues. He spent several months each year in the Yukon, Alaska, and the Hudson Bay region in search of new inspiration. American novelist William Curwood wrote adventure novels set in the Great Northwest. Many of his stories had romance as a main or secondary story element and included animals as main characters (Kazan; Baree, Son of Kazan, The Grizzly King). His 1919 novel The River's End, which sold more than 100,000 copies, was one of his best-selling works. Throughout his career, a number of intellectual and popular journals published his short tales and other writing.
