Overview

Women were outnumbered 25 to 1 in the Klondike Gold Rush. Thousands more followed their men's dreams to Alaska in the century that followed. This created the myth that Alaska was a "man's country." Not surprisingly, this idea came from men. In "Alaska Women Write," women dispel the myth. They learn to fly, work on the pipeline, teach in the Bush, raft wild rivers, discover a love for sport-fishing, and tangle with moose and grizzly bears. These energetic, thoughtful, and very personal stories are written from the heart with passion, humor, self-discovery, and a love of the north.
