He triumphed against the elements and the scoundrels who poached seals and sold rotgut whiskey to the Eskimos in the 1890s. But the most challenging trial he faced was in a San Francisco courtroom, when he went up against the scoundrels with money, power, and influence in the nations capital. Many Colors of White is the story of life in the 1890s, from the perils of the bone-chilling arctic wastes to the stunning revelations in a San Francisco maritime courtroom. It is best read by a roaring fire or under warm covers, because arctic winds blow cold whenever the book is opened.
