    Post Hatchett Lady!!!

    Arctic Homestead:



    "A chronicle of a family's efforts to build a home near the Arctic Circle in Alaska depicts their moving discovery of love and courage in a land of modern-day outlaws, feuds, grizzly bears and unbelievably harsh winters."

    Just breezed thru this, written by Norma Cobb and Charles W. Sasser. Norma Cobb was the last woman to Homestead in the USA, in approximately 1975. The Homestead was close to the Arctic Circle. Minook Valley in Alaska. She is a friend of my brother in law, and a very sweet lady.

    A comment in it, made in about 1977, hit my funny bone. As paraphrased:

    The folks in the "Lower 48" are getting soft. Too reliant on the government. Too dependent on others. They have no real sense of self, and wouldn't last a month up here.

    Some things never change.

    If you can find a copy, it's an interesting read. A fella once pulled a pistol on her then husband. She grabbed an axe, and gave him a "whack" on the arm. Her nickname, after that, was hence forever more "Hatchet Lady".......
