Seventeen-year-old David Jansson moves to an isolated fur-trading post at Gjoa Haven to live with his father, Per Jansson, manager for the Hudson’s Bay Company. David hasn't seen his dad for... More > five years, and the hot-tempered man he finds is not the gentle father he remembers—he has become a domineering, abusive alcoholic. A loving reunion between the two seems unlikely as father and son desire the same girl; the Inuit shaman ignores local customs and chooses the white youth for his apprentice; and Per hides a chilling family secret behind a bottle of rum. To escape an intolerable situation in a land where escape is nearly impossible, David stubbornly risks his life by underestimating the weather ... and his own heart.

More > died, the old man told his daughters about his secret adventures. Marco sailed with teams of Chinese, Mongol, Korean, Persian, and Syrian explorers on three voyages to America's West Coast.

More > settlement he called "New Albion." This was the first English colony in America. It marks the beginning of the British Empire. An ongoing feud between Drake and Q.Elizabeth can be traced to the Captain's desire to return to the Pacific in order to rescue shipmates he left behind. Elizabeth was furious that the natives had chosen Drake to be their new "King." Drake produced a map showing the West Coast within 15-degrees of its actual location.
