    A deftly crafted work of historical fiction, “Where the Moose Slept” is set deep in a field of wildflowers, far from any city. The story takes place during the Alaska oil boom, when two anachronistic romantics have heeded the call of the wild, and journeyed to meet their life’s adventure in the far north. Kate, the poet, has come from Hawaii to Alaska, ‘to see a winter.’ Inspired by the pervading idealism of the sixties, she dreams of establishing a harmonious world. Tim, a soldier returning from Vietnam, simply wants to build a log home and live life the way he wishes, like Jeremiah Johnson. They meet in Fairbanks, elope, and set about making their dream real. With an extraordinary attention to detail, “Where the Moose Slept” will have a very special appeal for teen age and young adult readers. While very highly recommended, especially for highschool, college, and community library YA Fiction collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that “Where the Moose Slept” is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $2.99).


  2. Dear Mr. Cox,
    Thank you very much for your great review of Part One of my Sleeping Moose Saga trilogy. I am honored. This review gives an unexpected boost to the release of Part Two, which debuts next week.
    Mahalo nui loa.
