Happily living a suburban matron's life in Texas, Kitty Eppston is shocked when her husband announces that they will be moving--as the Johnny Horton song goes--"North to Alaska." Once settled in the "Last Frontier," Kitty writes to her friends about her many adventures--from mining for gold to getting weighed in front of strangers before boarding a small aircraft, from the dog sled ride that had her dodging frozen flying feces to her performance of an indigenous dance in front of her laughing husband and an amphitheater full of people. As Kitty learns the gourmet complexities of muktuk and the challenges presented when penned up in a stall with a young musk ox, the reader will delight in her humorous escapades.

When Leigh Richards discovered Kitty's letters, she knew they needed to be brought to the world. Everyone, she thought, needs to learn to view unexpected obstacles as opportunities for humor. And now more than ever, everyone needs a reason to laugh out loud.
