Alaska Women Write, by Dana Stabenow
Women were outnumbered 25 to 1 in the Klondike Gold Rush. Thousands more followed their men’s dreams to Alaska in the century that followed. This created the myth that Alaska was a “man’s country.” Not surprisingly, this idea came from men. In Alaska Women Write (192 Pages), women dispel the myth. They learn to fly, work on the pipeline, teach in the Bush, raft wild rivers, discover a love for sport-fishing, and tangle with moose and grizzly bears. These energetic, thoughtful, and very personal stories are written from the heart with passion, humor, self-discovery, and a love of the north.
“Many of the stories are funny; others are touching… no matter what the subject; the tales are all uniquely Alaskan.”
—Anchorage Daily News
Dana Stabenow was born in Anchorage and raised on 75-foot fish tender in the Gulf of Alaska. She knew there was a warmer, drier job out there somewhere and found it in writing.
