    A really sweet, well-written book about the relationships, adventures, and challenges of the inhabitants of a remote, Alaskan village and Alaskan bush. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and will recommend it to others.

    Quick read. Having lived in Alaska so much of it was true to life. Reminds me a lot of the old "Northern Exposure" TV series, which I love.
