Henry Stillwater was once a big shot in the world of finance, until he went to prison. Now he is out and has been given a ticket north to a new life on the edge of the wilderness in the tiny old gold rush settlement of Dyea (pronounced Di-eee) near Skagway, Alaska.
It doesn't take long for the residents to figure out who their new neighbor is, and what to make of him. Henry falls right in with a new gang of cronies and their peculiar loves and misdeeds, but it s not what you think, and he will have to figure out whether this strange place will be his new home.

Raised by dogs on an Alaska homestead, author NITA NETTLETON writes about the places and gritty characters she knows and loves, from Talkeetna to Skagway.
Nita draws on her homesteader roots and an Alaska resume that reads like the Yellow Pages. "It's a tough place to get out of your head," she says. You really can't make up anything goofier, richer or more compelling than the real people and places in Alaska.
She likes to say she spent her first fifty years in Alaska and is shopping for where to spend the rest of her life. Tough job.
But Skagway draws her back. Of all the Alaskan towns I've lived in, Skagway is the one that is stuck in my teeth and stays with me wherever I go, she says.
She met her husband in Talkeetna, but insists she did not buy him at the bachelor auction. She maintains that life is better with a dog around. She has never been to prison.
