Elliott Bay Book Company says
We are delighted to welcome back award-winning novelist Eowyn Ivey, down from her Alaska home, on the occasion of her newly published second novel, To the Bright Edge of the World (Little, Brown). This will literally be just-out-of-the-box time, as its release was August 2, two days earlier. So many good things happened with her debut, The Snow Child, from winning a Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award to being a Pulitzer Prize finalist, that it’s hard to imagine more happening with this new book - and yet it might. She has written another fabulous one.

“An 1885 wilderness expedition, a female pioneer of photography, and Native American myths come to life make Ivey’s second novel an entrancing, occasionally chilling, depiction of turn-of-the-century Alaska. Through diaries, letters, reports, newspaper clippings, drawings, and photographs, Ivey evokes an Indian Wars veteran’s expedition up the Wolverine River into Alaska’s northern interior … In this splendid adventure novel, Ivey captures Alaska’s beauty and brutality, not just preserving history, but keeping it alive.” - Publishers Weekly.

“To the Bright Edge of the World is a glorious feast of American mythology … Gorgeously written, utterly un-put-downable, To the Bright Edge of the World sweeps its reader to the very brink of known territory, and presents that bright edge in stark relief: gleaming, serrated, unforgiving. As with The Snow Child, Eowyn Ivey has once again written a magical, breathtaking novel that I just cannot put out of my mind.” ―Jason Gurley.
