Majestically it rose from the icy waters, the gateway to the awesome wilderness of Alaska. Sitka drew all brand of adventurers, con men, criminals, and pioneers—men such as trail-tough, battle-hardened Jean LaBarge. He left the swamps of the Susquehanna behind for the rugged beauty—and deadly challenges—of this frozen frontier. But the empire-hungry Russians had already established a foothold in Sitka and they wouldn’t give it up without a fierce and treacherous struggle that stretched from San Francisco to the palaces of St. Petersburg. Now Jean faces the most dangerous fight of his life: a fight for a passionate woman and the right to claim Alaska for America.

This is truly a wonderful book. It was not fast paced however you just kept turning the pages to see what would happen next. I just could not put it down.

I have read many novels and short stories by Louis Le Moure and none are better than the others but all are 5 stars in my eyes. This one is different from the others and I read it in 2 days not willing to put it down. Doran Jaffas
