“This title is a collection of essays about the town of Haines, Alaska. Resident Heather Lende, an NPR contributor and columnist for several publications (including the obituaries for her local paper), reveals the joys and hardships of living in this remote town where the main access is by ferry or airplane. Not only is the town inhabited by some interesting personalities, the residents share their space with moose, bear and other wildlife. Life is not always easy in Alaska, but for those who call Haines home, it is a wonderful place to be.
