1885年冬天,艾倫.佛瑞斯特(Allen Forrester)上校帶領探險隊,深入未開發的阿拉斯加地區。這是個高度危險的任務,他們蒐集資訊、製作地圖,早已預期面對的是飢寒交迫,一股更強烈、神秘的力量,卻威脅著他們的一舉一動……另一方面,艾倫聰明獨立的太太索菲(Sophie)渴望一同踏上旅程,卻只能留在軍營。然而,她不斷衝撞社會傳統與規範,並投入攝影,捕捉野生鳥類的身影,等待丈夫歸來。佛瑞斯特夫妻的未來,充滿了不確定性……

由艾倫與索菲的後代華特(Walter)將先人史料贈予博物館揭開序幕,透過佛瑞斯特夫妻的日記、華特與博物館館長的通信,以及報紙簡章、攝影照片、圖表、地圖等資料,塑造有如真實歷史故事般的虛構世界,古今交錯。如前作《雪地裡的女孩》中鮮明的阿拉斯加世界,探索人類與大自然的界線。


Set again in the Alaskan landscape that she bought to stunningly vivid life in THE SNOW CHILD (a Sunday Times bestseller, Richard and Judy pick and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize), Eowyn Ivey's TO THE BRIGHT EDGE OF THE WORLD is a breathtaking story of discovery set at the end of the nineteenth century, sure to appeal to fans of A PLACE CALLED WINTER.

Lieutenant Colonel Allen Forrester receives the commission of a lifetime when he is charged to navigate Alaska's hitherto impassable Wolverine River, with only a small group of men. The Wolverine is the key to opening up Alaska and its rich natural resources to the outside world, but previous attempts have ended in tragedy.

Forrester leaves behind his young wife, Sophie, newly pregnant with the child he had never expected to have. Adventurous in spirit, Sophie does not relish the prospect of a year in a military barracks while her husband carves a path through the wilderness. What she does not anticipate is that their year apart will demand every ounce of courage and fortittude of her that it does of her husband.
