First edition. Signed by the author. Author's first novel. Fine in dust jacket. In 1616, as the last warm days dwindle in the north Atlantic, the men on an English whaling ship prepare to head back toward home. But there is one exception among them: the quiet, headstrong Thomas Cave. For Cave has bet the rest of the crew that he can spend a winter on this Arctic island. Alone. He faces months of darkness, ice, and blizzards and has nothing to his name except his rations, shelter, and a journal in case he doesn't survive to tell his story. Nothing seems to threaten the willful sailor as much as his own mind.
