Megan Lindholm's "Cloven Hooves" is set in Alaska, but it's not historical fiction, more like magical realism. I loved this book when it was first published in 1991 and read it about 20 times back-to-back. It was supposed to be re-released this year, but it seems that is no longer going to happen. (The Waterstones website says "Publication abandoned.") Older copies can be found, but not easily.

Definitely endorse this recommendation. This book is phenomenal...loved it so very much!
