Description

The beloved real-life story of a woman in the Alaskan wilderness, the children she taught, and the man she loved. "From the time I'd been a girl, I'd been thrilled with the idea of living on a frontier. So when I was offered the job of teaching school in a gold-mining settlement called Chicken, I accepted right away." Anne Hobbs was only nineteen in 1927 when she came to harsh and beautiful Alaska. Running a ramshackle schoolhouse would expose her to more than just the elements. After she allowed Native American children into her class and fell in love with a half-Inuit man, she would learn the meanings of prejudice and perseverance, irrational hatred and unconditional love. "People get as mean as the weather," she discovered, but they were also capable of great good. As told to Robert Specht, Anne Hobbs's true story has captivated generations of readers. Now this beautiful new edition is available to inspire many more. "The memoir reads like an old-fashioned novel, a heartwarming love story with the added interest of frontier hardships and vividly portrayed characters."--Publishers Weekly
