Great Alone

Kristin Hannah, 2017

A wilderness survival story of a family, moving from Seattle  to Kareq, Alaska in the early 1970’s. Husband and father, Ernst, a former Vietnam POW, hopes that a life among nature will give him a fresh start and an ability to deal with his PTSD.  However, the isolation, darkness, and cold of the Alaskan winters only exacerbate his irrational paranoia and abusiveness. His fearful but loving wife and their 13 year old daughter deal with wilderness living and the beauty and isolation in Alaska.   It explores abusiveness, jealousy, neighborliness and young love.
