On a fateful day in October 1875, Nathan Olason steps foot onto the soil of a foreign country called Canada, determined to claim this land as New Iceland. With natural sand beaches and breathtaking sunsets, it has been nicknamed paradise. Except it proves to be anything but.
With frigid temperatures, emerging governments, racism and dwindling food supplies, Nathan and his family struggle to stay alive in this unforgiving wilderness. With the help of a beautiful local Cree woman named Anwa, they slowly learn to fish and hunt, surviving against the odds.
Then just when they think they have prevailed, tragedy strikes an ominous blow, a smallpox epidemic that decimates villages, quarantines the town of Gimli, but most of all threatens to claim what he holds dear the most.
Would you survive?
Be one of the last men standing, follow Nath on a heroic journey of immigration, manhood, immense love and perseverance beyond anything we know.
