From the bestselling author of The Circle, a hilarious and heart-warming misadventure through modern America- it’s time for the family vacation . . . Josie’s life is falling apart – lawsuits raining down, her business down the drain and a feckless husband long gone – so she gathers up her two kids and lights out for the wilderness. The Alaskan wilderness, to be specific.This is a story about the trip of a lifetime. It involves one battered old RV, one highly sensitive eight year old boy, one fearless and hyperactive five year old girl, several forest fires, a large supply of pinot noir, and a deeply misguided sense of optimism. It may well be that things don’t turn out quite as Josie expected – but then again, some of the best places in the world are found at the end of a road you didn’t mean to take . . . Heroes of the Frontier is an uproariously funny portrait of modern America and the modern family, an entirely contemporary novel gleaming with Dave Eggers’ trademark intelligence and originality.
