As far as describing our book, this excerpt from the editor of the book to us says it all.

"After reading your tales, it is no wonder you were urged to write them down. In a very personal manner, you have painted wonderful pictures of what it was like to both homestead and then live for decades in the biggest state. The stories are humorous, heartfelt, and simply delightful.

I've commented at a couple of places in the manuscript where I actually laughed out loud while reading. And there are many other instances of successful humor in the book, one of the hardest things to pull off in print. In addition, your treatment of deaths is respectful and philosophical.

The structure is straightforward, as this is a collection of stories meant to be read in order. The information is presented in a logical sequence.

Your tone is conversational and down to earth, perfect for these stories of Alaska. The dialogue seems natural and keeps things moving."

If you enjoy reading this book half as much as we enjoyed writing it, we have been successful.
