9781602230644: A Place of Belonging: Five Founding Women of Fairbanks, Alaska

Alaska has always attracted people from varied backgrounds. In A Place of Belonging, Phyllis Movius introduces us to five women who settled in Fairbanks between 1903 and 1923 and who typify the disparate population that has long enriched Alaska. The women’s daily lives and personal stories are woven together in these biographical portraits, drawn from the women’s letters, memoirs, personal papers, club records, their own oral histories and published writings. Enriched by many never-before-published historical photos, Movius’s research gives us a unique inroad into life on the frontier.

About the Author:

Phyllis Movius has spent years in service with the American Red Cross and the United Way. She resides in Fairbanks, Alaska, with her husband, Jim.

Review:

"A Place of Belonging has great academic value, both for women’s studies and the study of U.S. history, as it gives detailed accounts of the lives of these five very different women, citing correspondence and including over seventy black and white photos...interesting and stimulating reading with enough narrative to entertain while documenting these inspiring lives."—The Feminist Review blog (The Feminist Review blog)
