ALASKA HOLIDAY by Barrett Willoughby


Email this review


The first two thirds of this book forms a record of a fascinating holiday spent by two women in an Alaskan post ""where the West began"". There's adventure and humor and a grand story altogether. The balance consists of short bits and long, all dealing with Alaska, but mostly with other experiences than her own, human interest stories, etc. I was particularly interested in what she had to say about the rural resettlement project in I'm a Cream Puff Pioneer, in which a great many theories and rumors are exploded and the facts told. Good reading, in all, and a good item for the budding interest in Alaska with the increased news value due in the months ahead.
