Summary
When Papa Pilgrim appeared in the Alaska frontier town of McCarthy with his wife and fifteen children, he presented his family as a shining example of the homespun Christian ideal, but he soon pulled the town into a confrontation with the National Park Service, and a battle between citizen's rights and the government's power. As the conflict grew more intense, it became increasingly difficult to tell whether his children were messianic followers or hostages in desperate need of rescue
