A lovely story with an underlying message of acceptance Living in Alaska among native peoples I was interested in what things were like then and if they have changed much The treatment of natives in this account is sad and disappointing, even though it is important to view it through the lens of that time period.I would have enjoyed some photos of the characters included in the book It would have brought the story to life and given additional perspective.The story itself I would rate 4 5 stars, but there were a few issues with grammar editing that troubled me The most distinct concern was that there seemed to be two different voices telling the story one minute I d be reading a beautifully poetic description and then be jolted by an unusual syntax There were a few places where the word came was used where come would have made sense, but either one was awkward Other problems for me were the lack of explanation of some terms like Outside which was used often Since it is capitalized I assume it is a place, but where What I thought was well done were the descriptions of mushing and the terrain I was also impressed at how vividly the events and feelings were recalled and shared with the reader.SPOILER ALERT I was also glad to see she eventually married Fred, it did not seem likely throughout the book She seems like someone I would love to meet. What a lovely surprise this was I only read non fiction and I wanted a light read this time A young 19 year old teacher goes to the wilds of AlaskaI was thinking Little House on the Prairie What a surprise that there was so much adventure than I expected The first half is a lovely, sweet read And the second half took me on adventure that blind sided me and did not expect twists and turns I highly recommend this book. I learned about the Native American culture by reading this book, than living 55 years near a Native American reservation Anne was so young when she set out to teach in the wilderness, yet she had sound values and remained steadfast to what she knew was right If I could give this book 8 stars I would Well written, informative, and it touched my heart Whenever I read a book and I continue to think about it, even weeks later, then for sure it s a good book This book held my interest from start to finish I d made a trip to Alaska a couple of years ago, so having traveled some of the same country, I was even interested in the story This book held my interest I couldn t put it down The descriptions of the scenery, the bigotry, and the unabashed insight into how people of different cultures often have trouble working together was especially well done It s often not understood but merely tolerated, and that s the best that can be done The description of how it is to live in primitive conditions with weather that is intolerable several months of the year was also well done The human spirit of survival really comes through in this novel There are a few books that I truly love and this will be one of them The book is the true life of Anne Hobbs who goes to a remote Alaskan village of Chicken, yes Chicken, in the 1920s to teach in a one room village school She is only 19 years old but has inherited her sense of adventure from her grandma who is part Indian I love books that take place in Alaska though I hate the cold, personally I learned so much about that time period of Alaska and was surprised at how the Indians were viewed as almost social outcasts The description of the bitter cold, snow and ice was so wonderful that I longed to get on my thermal underwear Read this wonderful book I m sure you will not be disappointed. This book is a breath of crisp frigid air on a cold clear Winter night Young Anne Hobbs the Tisha comes alive from the first page the other colorful characters walk right in behind her Robert Specht s story is very entertaining informative His depiction of life in the rugged old Alaskan wilderness is a big fat slice of historical reality what a fascinating story it is The descriptions of what it took to survive in a tiny Alaskan village without electricity or running water, snow mud everywhere few amenities, are vivid Definitely worth a read When I purchased this book, I was intrigued by the title I like memoirs I had no idea that this true story of a young woman s teaching assignment in a small village called Chicken in Alaska would captivate me to the point that I couldn t put it down The author takes the reader through almost a year where she is teaching but also learning much from the villagers and her students She was not looked with favor because of a friendship with a half breed and taking in two native children whose mother had died She was treated badly, but in the end was respected To say this is a great read is an understatement.
