"The author, a journalist for the Anchorage Daily News, has written a fascinating and most unusual account of The Pilgrim family - "Papa" Pilgrim, his wife and 15 children - which homesteaded to Alaska to an old mining outpost in 2002. This sounds like an adventure; however, it was anything but. His actions are bizarre, and under the guise of a pious Christian family, he manages to captivate the local townspeople and even the U.S. government. This is a spellbinding read, and I quote from one reviewer: "A Pilgrim who was no pilgrim." This is a true story that will keep you thinking for a long time to come."
