Customer Reviews

I know this is about the woman, however, I did not like the way she put down her husband all the time.
Suss Smith
The book provided me with an insight as to the weather conditions in Alaska and what it was like to live there in the late 1800 and early 1900 time period.
AvidReader
Oddly punctuated at points with somewhat irrelevant stories, but the central narrative is interesting and full of period detail.

I traveled the Alaska Highway last year in helping my daughter and her family move to Alaska. Since then I have read many books about Alaska including this very informative book about a woman who followed the gold seekers. I traveled with her to Dawson City and then down the Yukon to Nome when gold was discovered there. The book provided me with an insight as to the weather conditions in Alaska and what it was like to live there in the late 1800 and early 1900 time period. This had to be a brave woman to go on a journey as she did. I recommend this book for the informative and historical value that it provides.

This was a great story, written from a woman's perspective, of the goldrush. This book should be read by anyone who is looking for a first-person account of the lengths some people went to in the pursuit of gold.

Authentic reporting of a woman's experiences during the Klondike gold
rush. Oddly punctuated at points with somewhat irrelevant stories, but the central narrative is interesting and full of period detail. While the writer reveals little of her life situation (she is married but her traveling husband figures here not at all), her faith, pluck and work ethic emerge clearly and admirably from her handling of the various difficulties she surmounts. Her taste for natural beauty and her ability to react to many different people with sincere friendship make the story upbeat and interesting.

Stories of life in gold rush Alaska, told in very restrained English, by a woman who traveled there several times from the lower 48. The strength and resolve the author must have had to undertake these journeys is completely submerged under her Victorian manners; puzzling out her character makes it a fairly interesting read. I'd never have read it myself if I hadn't just moved to Alaska, compelling me to read almost anything I come across about the place. Not a page-turner by any means, would probably bore most people.

Although she is not a wonderful writer, in terms of training or pure talent, the story is gripping. It is very real. As an Alaskan, I am very glad she wrote this book. It gets the truth out from her perspective as to how things were when she was traveling in AK.

Really liked this book. So much descriptive detail. I enjoy visualizing all the scenery including the remote areas she described in towns I have pen pals in. It allows me to know how my new friends live, work, hunt and play where they are. I would love

Felt like this was an okay book. The authors' story of building a home was interesting. Enjoyed her story of her adventures on the boat and the encounter with the bear in the dark.
