Review:

In 1969, when she was six years old, Natalie Kusz, with her parents and three siblings, left Los Angeles and headed north to Alaska on a classic quest for freedom, a house on the land, and a more wholesome way of living. As with so many pioneers in our history, a heroic struggle and hardships of epic proportions lay ahead of them. What makes their adventure so remarkable is that it happened barely twenty years ago.

From Library Journal:

In 1969, when Kusz was six years old, she moved with her family from Los Angeles to Alaska, where they hoped to create an alternative homesteading lifestyle. So much for that idyll: within a year, Kusz was attacked by a neighbor's sled-dog, who tore away one side of her face, causing, among other injuries, the loss of an eye. Kusz was not expected to survive, but did; she underwent years of grueling surgery and recovery. Kusz not only survived but prevailed: she is a writer of exquisite grace and compelling voice. Only 27, Kusz has already been given a 1989 Whiting Writers Award and the 1990 General Electric Younger Writers Award for her work. This beautifully written memoir is a testament to the importance of family, honesty, courage, and hope. Very highly recommended.
