In scenes that range from Alaska’s coastal fishing ports to the high, fierce wastelands of the interior, we watch each man lay the plans for their individual goals - and ultimately come into fatal conflict. Along the way, they meet a wide, colorful variety of Alaskan types, including Charlie Blue, a Tlingit Indian, shaman, and seer; Norman Ormandy, the tough saloonkeeper of Gurry Bay; and Malec Mummad-Afi, a wealthy exiled Iranian oil king and sheep hunter.

Predictable and crude
Would you try another book from Robert F. Jones and/or Brian Holsopple?
The author is crude and demeaning of women.
The author does not generate any emotional connection with the characters.
Any additional comments?
I was hoping for an adventure of Alaska bush-pilots. But got a story of crude language and shallow characters. This is one of the few books where I wasn't rooting for any of the characters. The story was pretty predictable so there was no "edge of the seat" moments and at times it got preachy about the environment, but not in a inspirational way.
