Coming of Age & Living Dangerously in the Wild Copper River Valley|
In 1926, beautiful Aileen Gallaher left California to join trapper "Slim" Williams in Alaska's Copper River Valley. Theirs was a perilous existence spent in isolated cabins, bucking heavy snow, uncertain river ice, and fierce cold. Yet, Aileen fell in love with Slim and with the country, missing only female companionship. Enter Samme, her tenacious fifteen-year-old sister. Their lively and honest story details their emotional coming of age in a part of Alaska that is till considered remote.
