A powerful epic story of colonialism, set in eighteenth-century Greenland, about the great forces of nature, love, death, evil, and the meeting of cultures and fathers and sons.

Praise for The Prophets of Eternal Fjord:

A superb novel . . . A raw, hugely powerful chronicle of lives lived on the edge . . . Has a grandeur and a compass that few novels this year will match.
