* GodwinsLawOfTimeTravel: A rare [[InvertedTrope inversion]]. In this world's alternate timeline, Hitler got his ass kicked even ''harder'' that he did in our world. Among other changes, Germany was nuked in 1946 and the Holocaust killed only a third as many Jews as it did in RealLife. The book explores how these events (coupled with the collapse of Israel) complicate the lives of surviving Jews.

* TheNapoleon: Willie Dick, the 4'7" tall Tlingit cop, [[BadassBiker rides a 2/3 scale motorcycle]] and is generally described in terms that qualify him as a {{Badass}} of tall-tale proportions. Berko even {{Lampshades}} this, calling Dick "the emperor of the French."

* AlternateHistory: The point of divergence occurred in 1940, when Alaskan Delegate Anthony Diamond died in a car crash, thus allowing the US Congress to implement the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slattery_Report Slattery Report]] which opened Alaska to Jewish immigration. 4 million of the 6 million Jews who would have been killed in the Holocaust fled to Alaska, creating a vibrant and sprawling community centered around Sitka. Also, Germany was nuked in 1946 and Israel was destroyed after only 6 months during the first round of the ArabIsraeliWar. Other minor examples include the fact that OrsonWelles [[DifferentWorldDifferentMovies made his film]] of ''Literature/HeartOfDarkness''.
** Another major difference is a lengthy war between America and Cuba during the sixties.
