I finished this book in less time than any book I've read in years, largely because it's a fascinating account of some of the two years of Tom and his family's lives in Nome, Alaska, in purely unthinkable conditions, and I didn't want to put it down. As one other reviewer said, I can't wait for the next book by Dr. Tom Sims, of whom the rest of his career certainly included many other incredible tales.

This is a memoir with unsure personal and other people's statements, but the jist of the conversation and where it ended up is the key here. It is a wonderful piece of work, including the hospital personnel, the patients, the people in the village, and how his own family worked at making the best of what was a chaotic situation. It's a great read: entertaining, educational, and inspiring--all good calls for a lasting memory.
