On a fateful day in October 1875, Nathan Olason steps foot onto the soil of a foreign country called Canada, determined to claim this land as New Iceland. With natural sand beaches and breathtaking sunsets, it has been nicknamed paradise. Except it proves to be anything but.

With frigid temperatures, emerging governments, racism and dwindling food supplies, Nathan and his family struggle to stay alive in this unforgiving wilderness. With the help of a beautiful local Cree woman named Anwa, they slowly learn to fish and hunt, surviving against the odds.

Then just when they think they have prevailed, tragedy strikes an ominous blow, a smallpox epidemic that decimates villages, quarantines the town of Gimli, but most of all threatens to claim what he holds dear the most.

Would you survive?

Be one of the last men standing, follow Nath on a heroic journey of immigration, manhood, immense love and perseverance beyond anything we know.

Review quote

Very Enjoyable Read! As someone who doesn't read much I couldn't put this book down. Even taking place during an unfamiliar time, the characters are very relatable and I learned so much about the history of Gimli and the Icelandic immigration. I didn't expect this book to hit my emotions so hard. Definitely a new favorite. - JM May 27, 2020 USA

Very well written, great story. A great storyteller, makes you feel you are living the moment. Develops the characters very well, as if they are ready to jump out of the book. Very easy to read and as the story develops you really want to know what happens next. Can't wait for the second in the series coming out in the Fall. - Alan Liverman June 3, 2020 Canada

Beautifully Written! This book is a must-read, a hidden gem, and a novel that touches me emotionally. This story does what a story is supposed to do: Make you feel like you're there, while connecting to the characters and their journeys as time passes. I highly recommend this novel! - T.
