After her parents are killed in a rare grizzly attack, author Shannon Huffman Polson is forced into a wilderness of grief. Turning to loves she learned from her father, Polson explores the perilous terrain of grief through music, the natural world and her faith. Her travels take her from the suburbs of Seattle to the concert hall where she sings Mozart's Requiem, and ultimately into the wilderness of Alaska's remote Arctic and of her heart.

North of Hope: A Daughter's Arctic Journey is a deeply moving narrative shot through with the human search for meaning in the face of tragedy. Polson's deep appreciation for the untamed and remote wilderness of the Alaskan Arctic moves her story effortlessly between adventure, natural history and sacred pilgrimage, as much an internal journey as a literal one. Readers who are looking for new ways to understand loss will find guidance, solace and a companionable voice in this extraordinary debut.
