About this title


Book by Simpson, Sherry


As she explains, "end-of-the-roader" is a term for those in Alaska who have decided to abandon society and venture into the wilderness seeking peace or oblivion or sometimes even violence. The term might also well describe where Simpson takes her readers in this collection of stories. Once "the road" is left behind, we set off on an unforgettable journey into a hostile yet compelling world where peace may be just over the next mountain and violence can be lurking behind the next bush -- The Monterey Country Post, Dec. 17, 1998

Once in a great while, even this foreigner gets an inkling that she is reading something truly Western, truly indigenous. These are the books that could be read anywhere, because their roots go so deep into Western soil that they join the other strong, place-inspired literatures at the molten canon at the Earth's core. Read these stories in New York and you can still be stung by the wind off the tundra -- Los Angeles Times Book Review, Oct. 25, 1998

Readers will trust the voice immediately because she speaks the language of the Alaskan landscape. Simpson blurs the line between spectator and participant by living the experiences she writes about....Ultimately, she wants readers to know that the landscape, although frozen, is alive with activity. "Everything is going somewhere," she writes. In irresistible language, she bewitches the reader just as the Alaskan landscape has bewitched her (Publisher's Weekly, Sept. 14, 1998). REVIEW: ...a journalist's objectivity combined with a poet's love of words... -- Juneau Empire, Sept. 24, 1998

Store Description

Sharing is the best surprise When we share our excess with others we¿re often surprised by what we feel, what changes in us, and who we get to know in the process. Sharehouse Goods exists to create that experience for as many people as possible. Sharehouse Goods receives excess stuff from individuals or organizations (our sharers), and then we liquidate that stuff, creating jobs for people in Milwaukee. The process is simple: we receive what people are willing to share, and then we sell it online or at our storefront, creating revenue for the sharers (to keep or to donate), and jobs for people who are struggling to find employment. There¿s a lot of sharing going on, and even more surprises, at Sharehouse Goods.
