Publisher's Summary

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.

Not Michener

This was made from tapes and the sound quality was poor (hard to understand while driving). The book was recommended by a friend. She liked it, but I didn't. Unnecessary descriptions of sex.
