Afterlands Pa by Steven Heighton

In 1871, nineteen men, women, and children, voyaging on the Arcticexplorer USS Polaris found themselves cast adrift on an ice floe as their ship began to founder. Based on one of the most remarkable events in polar history, Afterlands tells the haunting story of this small society of castaways -- a white and a black American, five Germans, a Dane, a Swede, an Englishman, and two Inuit families -- and the harrowing six months they spend marooned in the Arctic, struggling to survive both the harsh elements and one another. As the group splinters into factions along ethnic and national lines, rivalries -- complicated by sexual desire, unrequited love, extreme hunger, and suspicion -- begin to turn violent. Steven Heightons provocative novel fills in the blanks of the Polariss documented history and explores the shattering emotional and psychological consequences faced by those who survive.
