Praise
"A chilling, atmospheric story that will haunt readers with its descriptions of a desolate terrain and Sig's difficult decisions."
"Gracefully weaving in sources as diverse as the Old Testament story of Job and an 1896 ad for the revolver, Sedgwick lures his readers into deeper thinking while they savor this thrillingly told tale."
From the Publisher
Annotation Set in 1910, in a remote village miles north of the Arctic Circle, a 14-year-old boy must cope with just his father's frozen body for company while his mother and sister get help. Sig is ill-prepared for the arrival of Gunther Wolff, a terrifying stranger demanding gold that Sig's father supposedly owes him. Sig must piece together what the truth is, and protect himself and his family. Will he have to resort to using his father's Colt revolver? With a narrative that moves back and forth in time, recalling the Alaska Gold Rush, this is a gripping story set in the frozen north.
Editors Note A gun is not a weapon. It’s an answer. It’s an answer to the questions life throws at you when there’s no one else to help.|In an isolated cabin in an Arctic wilderness, 14-year-old Sig is alone with a corpse—his father, who fell through the ice of the lake and froze to death only hours earlier. Then, a stranger appears outside his door: a huge, bear-like man claiming that Sig’s father ran off with his gold—and threatening awful violence if Sig doesn’t tell him where it is. Sig knows nothing about the gold, but he does know that there’s a loaded Colt revolver hidden in the cabin. But even if Sig can get his hands on it, will he be able to shoot first?
