Extremely good read

After watching the old John Wayne Movie I decided to read the novel. I was not disappointed. The descriptions of inner struggle for love and power were insightful and compelling.

It could have moved a little faster, but the slower pace, imagery and colorful characters are what make it a great read. The movie did not do this novel anything close to justice.

Adventure in the early days of Alaska and the gold rush. Didn't really like the hero. He was just too overbearing, especially when he first meets the heroine. Wanted someone to smack him upside the head. But I guess he redeems himself when he manages to rescue the heroine from a fate worse than death towards the end of the book. No, I've given it a second thought - I still don't like him.
