Anne Hobbs was only 19 in 1927 when she came to harsh and beautiful Alaska, settling in a gold-mining settlement called Chicken. Running a ramshackle schoolhouse would expose her to more than just the elements; after she allowed Native American children into her class and fell in love with a half-Inuit man, she would learn the meanings of prejudice, perseverance, and unconditional love. As told to Robert Specht in 1976, Hobbs's true story is a vivid reminiscence of life on the frontier.

"The memoir reads like an old-fashioned novel, a heartwarming love story with the added interest of frontier hardships and vividly portrayed characters."—Publishers Weekly
