A GLOBE 100 Best Book of the Year

In the grand tradition of Michener's Alaska and Rutherford's Sarum, bestselling authors David Cruise and Alison Griffiths have captured the essence of one of Canada's richest settings. Beginning in the dying era of the last Ice Age and spanning thousands of years, Vancouver starts with the story of the last survivor of a Siberian people and moves through history in a dynamic tapestry.
