Others on your holiday lists  -  -  -  


  • Mail Carrier - a break from every day life
  • Friends in the Quilting group
  • Neighbor who stops by to chat most afternoons
  • School Libraries - donate a book in your child or grandchild's name
  • Public Libraries
  • Convalescent Hospitals - the residents will enjoy the true story of a young girl in Alaska

Hey - I'm not a bookmark!


One stop shopping - and if you have Amazon Prime you can have the print books shipped right to each person - or if you order Kindle it will be delivered to their Kindle for instant reading.

If you'd like an autographed copy, there is still time - leave me a message and a way to contact you and we'll work out the details.  I'm always happy to autograph a book.  The autographed books have to come from me, as none at amazon are autographed - I have a good supply handy this holiday season.  If you want it autographed and sent as a gift I'll even include gift wrapping free.




Thanks for shopping

You might add that many things you need to see and hold in your hands before buying, but books are the best things to buy on line.

I am struck how at this period our parents all took the same style of photo...fun and interesting post.

Haha - love how you have promoted your book with the assistance of bears! Great pics and your humor shows through joyously JoAnn. I've only visited Alaska once, about 10 yrs. ago, and LOVED it. Hope to go again some day - perhaps by cruise ship next time in order to view more of the coastal scenery.

Happy weekend - hugs, Mary

Definitely a wonderful book and a great gift for anyone on the list. My Dad was stationed in Alaska during his time in the Army/Air Force and he told wonderful stories of his time there. I was blessed to get a chance to visit Ketchikan, Juneau, and Anchorage and it was the trip of a lifetime. A beautiful place on earth and a wonderful book. I very much enjoyed it. xo Karen
