January 18 2008 Alaska Newsletter

Dear Readers,

As I took a walk in the fresh snow this afternoon, a white Super Cub on skis flew overhead. I waved at my neighbor and he dipped his wing in reply. I also encountered another neighbor out training her sprint dogs, followed by her daughter on snow machine. Finally, as I got to my driveway, a third neighbor drove by in her truck and waved. At that moment it occurred to me that even though we live on the road system, people get around locally by a variety of methods. We are fortunate to live in a town where we can walk out our door and hop on the snow machine or hook up the dogs, and not have to haul them to a trailhead somewhere down the road before heading out in to the country.

This book about life in the Copper River Valley in the 1920's and 1930's is full of adventure, yet told with warm-hearted humor and affection for the land and its people.
