This book seemed to be written like a diary; most of it was set-up for the final chapters and the epilogue. Many events in the book were stand-alone events and didn't relate to anything else--almost like page fillers. I had to make myself finish reading this book.
The main plot in this book was good and credible, but there were a few events that seemed superfluous--most likely set ups for future books. I thought they could have been omitted. All in all, a good read.
A very good book compiling the journals and notes of C.W. Adams (a Cheechako from North Dakota) a riverboat captain and miner in Alaska during the early 1900's. It depicts the resourcefulness and hard work needed to survive in Alaska--along with the willingness to help anyone in need. The artwork at the beginning of each chapter is wonderful!
Excellent book on the training that a class goes through to become members of the special forces. Couch effectively shares individual triumphs and failures as the class progresses. The first chapters are a little slow, but the book picks up once the class gets started.
This is an excellent book for creating your own floral bouquets, corsages, and boutonniers for a wedding. I had no experience and created the all the flowers for my daughter's wedding party of six, along with her bouquet, grandmother corsages, etc. Besides saving hundreds of dollars and having flowers that will keep as remembrances, they looked better than silk flowers shown in floral shops as examples of what they provide. No one knew they were silk unless they went up and smelled them.
The instructions are easy to follow and there are a lot of different ideas in the book.
