Alaska, Oh Alaska: A True to Life Novel of Frontier Alaska by Carol Hand
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The story is defined as a "True to Life Novel" told in the first person by someone named Ellen Barton. The author is not Ellen Barton. She is Carol Hand. In the preface, she states that she and her husband raised their family in Alaska. This book was okay, but an actual true account of her family's experiences would be more interesting. Many people from the lower forty-eight states undertake once in a lifetime trips to Alaska. Reading true accounts before or during the trip enhance the experience.
What a great adventure story of the life of the Author. I really enjoyed this story from her beginnings of coming to Alaska with a young baby to making a life with her Husband an children. A wonderful story of hard work an grace. Just sad when the story ended. I was so enjoying the ride along with her.
Interesting to read about Ms Hand's life after moving to Alaska. Writing is a bit stilted, grammar and sentence structure questionable. Was it edited? Kind of feels like she is "talking down" to the reader. Would have rather given it 2.5 stars if allowed.
