Book Description
 
Simon & Schuster: NY 1992 First edition, first printing, fine in fine dustjacket, signed by author, imperfections noted.

Price clipped. Set in Alaska, Due North is an extraordinary novel about a young woman - Sara Maher. Sara, fiercely independent daughter of a conventional middle-class American family, has for years made a precarious living furtrapping in the mountains of the frozen Arctic, in love with nature's simplicity and stark beauty. But Sara is also a haunted survivor, desperately trying to conquer her guilt, and the terror that still accompanies it.

Her mother is old and dying - kept alive in the limbo of a nursing home. And her beautiful sister has been wounded to bitterness by a broken marriage. Sara finds she must now cope with a different wilderness, the complexities of civilization. And in one humorous episode, she finds herself in a mano a mano contest with a powerfully muscled girl aerobics instructor - determined to put Sara in her place. In meeting the challen
