Synopsis:

This moving, gripping account of her many adventures tells of Hannah camping with Indians, being attacked by wild dogs, and facing death on many occasions. 30 photos.


Review:

"... 'A Schoolteacher in Old Alaska' is not only a good story, but good history.... Jane Jacobs, in her own late 70s, came to an appreciation of her great-aunt in her historical setting. And, happily, Jacobs bequeathed us a rare record of old Alaska when optimism animated teachers as well as gold-seekers."

Luree Miller, Washington Post Book World, 02/25/1996

Review:

"...this memoir of Breece's 14 years in Alaska is the revealing testimony of a woman who was typical of her times yet extraordinary in how she rose above them."

Kirkus, 11/15/1995
