I first heard of Lillian Alling when I was visiting Dawson Yukon. While there I attended a short presentation at the Historical Museum the presentation was a short narrative on Lillian. I became so intrigued that i had to learn more. Now i bought this book and became enthrauled with the mystery behind this awsome woman and the perils along her journey. I'm not an avid book reader but this book I could not put down I had to read it continually to the very end sentence.
