Colonel Allen Forrester receives the commission of a lifetime when he is charged to navigate Alaska’s hitherto impassable Wolverine River with only a small group of men. The Wolverine is the key to opening up Alaska and its huge reserves of gold to the outside world, but previous attempts have ended in tragedy. Set again in the Alaskan landscape that she brought to stunningly vivid life in The Snow Child, join us as we discuss Pulitzer prize finalist Eowyn Ivey’s second novel To the Bright Edge of the World, a breathtaking story of discovery and adventure set at the end of the nineteenth century, and of a marriage tested by a closely held secret.
