Despite some views about Native Americans and Russians that I find cringeworthy from the safety of the twenty-first century, this memoir by a middle-aged teacher in pioneer era Alaska made me feel a great deal of affection for Hannah Breece. Jane Jacobs' annotations and epilogue provide readers with even more respect for Hannah. When readers learn that Hannah risked her life and well-being for the benefit of Native Alaskans -- in one case, ostracizing herself from the majority of the White community in Fort Yukon -- it becomes harder to condemn her. Recommended for all teachers and readers curious about Alaskan life in the early twentieth century.
