    Bonnie, you certainly deserve the award! Congratulations!!!

  2. Congratulations on your award. I just finished reading your book on my Kindle and really enjoyed it. You definitely give a great sense of what it is like living off of your own strength — physical, emotional and spiritual — in a very trying landscape. What I kept being amazed by what that not only did you have to haul all of your water but you had to hand-wash your clothes!! That would wear me out right there. Thank you for a lovely memoir.

    • I am so glad you enjoyed my book. Thank you for taking the time to correspond with me! Yes, over the years, there were many hundreds of trips to the lake for water! Part of everyday life! It was very trying at times, but I absolutely came to love my life on Caribou Island!

    Congratulations! You deserve it! I just finished your wonderful book and have to say it is among my favorites now! We just returned from a wonderful 2 week visit to Alaska where I purchased your wonderful book at the Anchorage Museum. I enjoyed it so much!Thank you for sharing your great adventure with us!

    • Hello, Linda!
      What a joy to hear from one of my readers’! I was so tickled to hear that you purchased the book from the Anchorage, Alaska Museum. I never really know where my books have been distributed, so it’s great to find these things out. I’m glad you enjoyed our story! Was this your first trip to Alaska? It’s such a wonderful place isn’t it? Hope you will stay in touch!

      Thanks again, for taking the time to comment! It means more to me than you know!


  4. Read your book on my kindle and loved every minute. Gave me a chance to be an armchair traveler from Maine to Alaska. Are you writing a sequel ?

    • Hi Joy,

      Thanks for getting in touch with me. I am so pleased that you enjoyed my book! I’ve been asked about a sequel and although I’m slowly working on one I can’t promise a time when I’ll get it done! Thank you for asking!

      Thank you,
