The author tells the story as told to him of Anne Hobbs, a woman who went to Alaska in the 1920's to teach, but who had trouble due to her kindness to the Indians there.
Carolyn's Comments: This heartwarming story is full of laughs and drama as you follow the real-life adventures of a young woman from the "lower 48" whose only l
source of love and caring in childhood was from her Indian grandmother. She finds herself teaching in a frontier one-room school house complete with a wood stove and an outhouse. When the townspeople informed her that Indian children were not welcome in their school,
she stood her ground and threatened to leave if the Indian children were excluded. This is a truly great read for the whole family with many important lessons to impart.
