Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a book about Alaska as a homeland, with its many quandaries. And about how its author, by listening to those who have long lived here, found her own home."
—Anchorage Daily News

“Molly Rettig, in her book debut, shares stories from Alaska's gold rush, airplane age and oil boom, and how Alaska changed ‘from a land of subsistence to a land of resource development.’ She blends these stories with her own, ending up with a memoir of a young, adventurous person from the East Coast, trying to come to terms with a place—and people—full of contradictions.”
—Alaska History



"A finely wrought series of portraits depicting humans’ impact on the largest American state."
Kirkus Reviews



Named as a "Favorite Book of the North from 2021" by Anchorage Daily News
