It is 1970, and a down-at-the-heels California commune
devoted to peace, free love, and the simple life has decided
to relocate to the last frontierâ€”the unforgiving landscape
of interior Alaskaâ€”in the ultimate expression of going back
to the land. Armed with the spirit of adventure and naĂŻve
optimism, the inhabitants of â€śDrop Cityâ€ť arrive in the
wilderness of Alaska only to find their utopia already
populated by other young homesteaders. When the two
communities collide, unexpected friendships and dangerous
enmities are born as everyone struggles with the bare
essentials of life: love, nourishment, and a roof over oneâ€™s
head. Rich, allusive, and unsentimental, T.C. Boyleâ€™s ninth
novel is a tour de force infused with the lyricism and
take-no-prisoners storytelling for which he is justly famous.
