about this book

Originally published in 1958, Ice Palace is Pulitzer Prize winner Edna Ferber's classic and mighty novel about the taming of a great northern wilderness—Alaska.

Czar Kennedy came to Alaska for money and power, Thor Storm for a dream. This is the story of their struggle, over a long half-century, for the future of Alaska and the destiny of their beautiful, rebellious granddaughter, Christine, a courageous woman who must make a choice that will shape the destiny of a new generation. Above all, it is the glowing and eloquent tale of Alaska itself—the last, great American frontier.

"Edna Ferber's Alaska . . . vivid, brilliant, superb!" —Christian Science Monitor

"A whopping good story." —Dallas Times Herald

"Unforgettable—tremendous power and sweep. . . . Edna Ferber has immortalized the region of Alaska as she did Texas in Giant, the Midwest in So Big, Oklahoma in Cimarron." —Detroit Times

"Rousing, memorable novel by the world's greatest living American woman novelist." —New York Journal American
