Happy Wednesday to you! You all know that when hubby and I travel, I always hit a quilt store or two or three; on our Alaskan trip I not only did that, but also bought two books(actually I got two kids books too). I wasn't planning on buying books, that is why I have our IPad, but when I met these two authors I just couldn't help myself.
Alicia Loveland is a wonderful lady-so gracious and friendly. I bought this book for my daughters, so they could use it as a resource for their curriculum. I loved the story; Alicia weaves a tale that you can picture. There are some pranks she talks about from her childhood that I didn't feel my grandsons need to hear about, but all in all, it was a great book.
When I met Lance Mackey, I could tell that he has had a difficult life. Winner of consecutive Yukon Quest and Iditarod dog sled races, his story is one of trials and victory-not only on the frozen trails but also fighting back from cancer. Lance is a man of passion for his dogs and of courage. I have learned so much about dog sledding, the Idatarod and dogs in general from his book.
I would recommend both of these books to anyone interested in what wildnerness living is all about and the courage to live in Alaska.
I'm off to walk and ride and then have our monthly craft group this afternoon.
Hope you have a great day!
