The authenticity and tenderness of this recorded shared adventure is a rare treasure. The "vintage" of time and lead characters create a treasure - the closure with historic significance, brings a balance to time well spent with this compelling read.

I enjoyed this book very much. I recently read 'Alaska Sourdough' by Richard Morenus (1956) about Clyde 'Slim' Williams and this finished the story. 'Sourdough' doesn't mention Slim being married! This completes the story. If you like reading about Alaska, dog sledding, cabin building, animals and how hard and dangerous it was, you would enjoy this book.
