(The tenth book in the Making of America series)
A novel by Lee Davis Willoughby (William L DeAndrea, Richard Deming and Richard Laymon)
"America's purchase of Alaska from Russia, called "Seward's Folly" after the Secretary of State who masterminded the negotiations, drew a raging army of speculators, thieves, dreamers, prostitutes and gamblers, when word came of a gold strike in the Klondike. Among them was the tall, muscular young man who gave his name as Bryan Mathews, whom the Eskimo women called "the Man-God." Baroness Irina Feodorovna and her equally spectacular daughter, Milla, wanted Mathews for entirely different reasons. Milla saw him as the love of her life. Irina saw him as a key - not only to unlock the pent-up passions of her magnificent body, but as a key through which she could control and rule the secret riches of this frozen kingdom called Alaska."
