CLIP - Like many other World War ll veterans, Gordon Stoddard headed up the Alcan Highway because he found civilian life too tame. He had heard of easy-money in construction and shing and he was on the lookout [or adventure, but most of all he wanted a homestead. Go North, Young Man tells ot his rst tour years as a homesteader on Alaska s Kenai Peninsula. With wit made sharp by frontier life, he presents this exactly as he found it. Food and shelter get main attention. Leaving big game to stateside hunters, he concentrates on fish, snow- shoe rabbits, spruce chickens, ptarmigan, ducks and geese: food for his larder. Guided by a "How to Build a Cabin pamphlet, he puts up his rst cabin in just three days; then insulates it with cardboard cartons he picked up in Homer. Later comes the fancy cabin with its mail-order stove to keep his food, his feet, and his nialamute warm. The day he installs lights and running water causes neigh- borhood celebration. There is no celebration" the day his greenhouse burns. That was his living. Seller Inventory # 010781
