Download Arctic Schoolteacher: Kulukak, Alaska, 1931–1933 (The Western Frontier Library Series) epub
by Abbie Morgan Madenwald
When Abbie Morgan arrived with her husband Ed in the Alaskan village of Kulukak in 1931 to teach school, many of the Eskimos had never before seen a white woman. Kulukak could be reached by boat when the approach was not frozen over and by dogsled when ice made travel by boat impossible.
Arctic Schoolteacher is the story of Abbie’s Alaskan experience, from the detailed planning necessary for taking a year’s worth of provisions to an isolated village to her departure from Alaska in 1933. In colorful, descriptive prose, she tells of the difficulty of travel and communication in the Far North, the magnificent physical environment, and the children to whom she devoted her time.
