This is an angry novel, telling of the fifty-year battle between two titans trying to dominate Alaska's future. And this is the story of their lovely young granddaughter, Christine Storm, who had to choose between two younger titans- a choice that stood, in a way, for Alaska's future.
The characters in Ice Place are all as strong, as boldly drawn as the towering mountains that surround them. The novel's vital theme of a proud land's virile insistence on the dignity of independence is as forceful as the invigorating air its people breathe.
