A true story of a courageous woman, Anne Hobbs, who, in 1927, at the age of 19, arrives in Chicken, Alaska, to teach the children in this mining settlement. Life is difficult for Anne as she faces hardships such as few school supplies, harsh winter weather, and a community that is very much against her desire to reach out to the Indians and teach them as well. Ann believes that everyone, regardless of race or age should have the chance to learn and become educated. This is a much loved book that reveals the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness and the harsh realities of life at that time. Through it all, Ann stands up for what she believes is right. This book, translated into five languages, shares her story.
