The Great Alone - Janet Dailey. While America was being settled by westward Expansion, Russia was expanding its territory by moving east. Throughout its early history, the one commodity Russia had in abundance to trade to both Europe and China was furs-sable, ermine, fox, bear, and other valuable pelts. Everything was computed in furs; taxes, salaries, penalties, and rewards were paid in furs.

Lord knew, he’d had few chances to see much of anything in his twenty-two years the Klondike, he was going to eat nothing but meat. He never wanted to smell another fish again. He hated fish and he hated the sea. His father was welcome to both, but he wasn’t about to spend the rest of his life stinking like a fish. Other passengers aboard the steamer had disembarked ahead of him, obviously sharing his intentions.

The Great Alone is the extraordinary new bestseller from Janet Dailey that captures the heart of the last American frontier. I've read this book three times; once before moving to Alaska, once after living here for a year, and again after living here for 15 years. The book was different each time and it wasn't until the third time through that I wasn't absolutely sure that I loved it. Yes, some of the stories (especially toward the end of the book) are corny and have an eye-rolling quality but I didn't feel that it ruined the entire book.

The Great Alone is the extraordinary new bestseller from Janet Dailey that captures the heart of the last American frontier. This sweeping epic--spanning more than 200 years and seven generations of native Alaskans--tells the story of the building of Alaska from a woman's point of view.

I purchased this hard to find product through Amazon as I do most of my hard to find items. The Great Alone is a great novel about Alaska and Janet Dailey researched her subject quite well. I am from Alaska, and from the region she writes about and as a young woman did many of the things the novel wrote about. I wanted to give my granddaughter a copy so she could understand our Alaska Native culture, how the Russians came & massacred our people & forced them to hunt sea otters for the fur and the novel carries over through generations of one family. It was priced right & shipped immediately. Thanks Amazon for making it easier to share my culture with my family.

This is a terrific book about the history of Alaska. It begins when the Russians discovered the wealth of otter pelts, and began to take over, and continues right on through the centuries. . Many of the characters are real, but the author adds some fictional ones to give herself license to create stories on a more personal level. It's sometimes educational and sometimes soap opera, but always very enjoyable. Couldn't put it down. I read it years ago. This recent copy I bought is for my daughter. .

I enjoy long books that I can really get into, and that aspect of this book I appreciated. However there were way too many intricate details that became tedious and didn't seem to be necessary to the story. Following the story of Alaska from the first Russian hunters to becoming a state through generations of the same family was covered with intense geography and history. I've read several Janet Daily novels and she didn't disappoint, but as I said, she could have saved a few descriptions

There is so much history wrapped in this family saga you can't help but learn it. The characters are well drawn and compelling. Totally enjoyable!

A superbly written and edited novel for those who love history, detail, and a compelling story. Viewing 200 years of Alaska's history through the eyes of one family was fascinating for me, even though I knew a fair amount of the history involved. The author's ability to make you feel you were in the places she describes was marvelous. Not a book for the impatient, or someone preferring light romance or the like, but a serious novel that is also very informative and accurate in the history it recounts. Highly recommended.

Great historical fiction. It is a long book but every chapter leads into the next leading the reader through generations. I can't put into words how much I loved reading this book and how much I miss reading it. The characters are so well developed I ended up feeling like I know them still. The end of the book was so well done. I felt satisfied when I read the last page. I was entertained and educated.

If I could only read one book a year, this is the one I would choose. How I wish there was a sequel to describe Alaska and the ongoing history of the family (which seems so likely to have been) since statehood. What a great historical novel, it truly moves the reader into the past of the settlement of Alaska, the many local native tribes and how they were used, assimilated and abused. Wonderful descriptions of the land and its settlers.
This was a wonderful saga of a family and the history of the settling of Alaska. I learned a lot about the native people and the trials and predjuces they had to suffer as their land was invaded by strangers. It parallels what the American Indians went through in the early days.I
Author showed the pioneer spirit in the strong female characters that she developed in this story.
For anyone who loves Alaska and history I highly recommend this book.
