Rave Review from Winnipeg Free Press:
"With its opening image of a man dragging himself on his stomach over a snowdrift, Anchorage author Don Reardon grabs us with his debut novel and pulls us onto Alaska's frozen tundra. Behind the man, a blind woman on a sled asks, "They're all gone here too?"

Something has happened. A village has burned, and it is apparently not the first one. There is one other set of sled tracks, which makes them uncomfortable.

So begins this literary novel about post-apocalyptic survival."
