A unique graphic novel telling the stories of real and fictional Arctic castaways struggling to survive the long Northern winter.
1912...Captain Robert Bartlett sets sail aboard the Karluk, flagship of the Canadian Arctic Expedition.

The survivors, Bartlett and an Inuk companion set out across the ice for the Siberian coast, in search of help. 1926...23-year old Inuit Ada Blackjack signs on as a seamstress for a top-secret Arctic expedition. But soon she finds herself alone and stranded in the treachorous landscape of the arctic. Present day...A disgraced university professor, tracking the lives of these survivors soon finds history repeating itself as he follows in the footsteps of those before him...With stunning narrative skill, this compelling book weaves together true life narratives from 1912, 1926 and a fictional narrative set in the present day that will take you on an unforgettable journey of love, loss and most importantly shows the strength, no matter how harsh the circumstances, it takes to survive.
