Book Description
For sixty years, Jewish refugees and their descendants have prospered in the Federal District of Sitka, a "temporary" safe haven created in the wake of revelations of the Holocaust and the shocking 1948 collapse of the fledgling state of Israel. Proud grateful, and longing to be American, the Jews of the Sitka District have created their own little world in the Alaskan panhandle, a vibrant , gritty, soulful, and complex frontier city that moves to the music of Yiddish. For sixty years they have been left slone, neglected and half forgotten in a backwater of history. Now the District is set to revert to Alaskan control , and their dream is coming to an end: once again the tides of history threaten to sweep them up and carry them off into the unknown.
