Sale price$16.95


This book explores the lives of twelve distinctly different women who arrived in territorial Alaska by birth, choice, or chance. Meet Nellie Neal Lawing, a trapper, hunter, and musher, who as legendary "Alaska Nellie" entertained tourists in her Trophy Room when the Alaska Railroad made it an official stop; Benzie Ola "Rusty" Dow, who became the first woman to drive the Alcan highway delivering a load of cement from Fairbanks to Dawson in just seven days; and many other women who impacted the history of Alaska.
