Review: The Alaska Homesteader’s Handbook

Ever wonder how homesteaders in the Alaskan bush manage to get by in the extreme conditions? This book can give some insight.

by Leon Pantenburg

The Alaska Homesteader’s Handbook: Independent Living on the Last Frontier by Tricia Brown and Nancy Gates

My typical reaction to getting a new book in the mail is to leaf through the pages, and decide when (and if) I want to read it completely and do a review.

But The Alaska Homesteader’s Handbook grabbed me from page one and held on for about 40 stories and a couple hours. My first impression, re-enforced through the writing, was that this book is a well-written, informative collection of useful knowledge. In addition, most of information would be valuable to homesteaders anywhere or to anyone interested in emergency preparedness.
