What readers are saying:
- I was captivated from the moment I picked up this story. The writing style and voice is a delightful step back into early 1900s America, and the author has a fascinating blend of wit and poetic description as she writes about her experience travelling to Alaska. She captures the beauty and grandeur of Alaska so that I could almost picture in my mind's eye what she was describing. - W.S., Amazon Reviewer
- Constance Taylor was given a charming, witty description of a 1909 Alaska cruise abord the Steamer Northwestern. In publishing that writing, she brought the travelogue vividly to life by adding about 50 photographs of the scenery and towns mentioned. - Order S, Amazon Reviewer
