Janet Dailey's landmark saga of adventure and romance spans 200 years with the rich and dangerous wilds of Alaska as a backdrop. The epic begins with the love of a beautiful Aleut woman for a noble and ambitious Cossack hunter. From their union come seven generations of a proud breed of native Alaskans, in whose veins flows the blood of the many peoples - Russian, Indian, English, American - who played a part in forging this new land. The story of these intrepid men and women, their dynasty, their dreams, and the heritage they share is a grand as the land from which they sprang. The Great Alone
brings Alaska's history, rendering the last American frontier in all its lonely splendor.
