This is a great book. It is a true story about a young woman teaching in the bush of Alaska in 1927. Along with the obstacles of weather and lack of supplies, she has to deal with racism against Indians that she didn't expect. The descriptions of Alaska, makes you feel as if you are right there. This story has a lot -- history, travel, coming-of-age, adventure and love.
I absolutely adore this book! You can tell I'm a bit enthusiastic about it, right? Tisha the young teacher has the chance of a lifetime to teach in Alaska. She jumps at the chance. Her adventures and her life are a thrilling tale to tell. And it's not FICTION - it really happened. After reading the library edition - I sent away for a really nice copy because I wanted it for my permanent library collection. A keeper. Recommend.
