Abstract

Makepeace Hatfield, the heroine of Marcel Theroux's 2009 novel Far North, is one of the last survivors of a Siberian settlement. Her father was an early settler: an American Quaker who fled a decadent world for a frontiersman's life. In the Siberian summer, he discovered fertile terrain, purple and brown, and water that "heaved with salmon," as Makepeace recalls. "Nothing I've known in the Far North resembles the land of ice that people expected him to find here."
