Eowyn Ivey, The Snow Child
Eowyn Ivey, The Snow Child. A beautiful fairy-tale about a mysterious girl appearing to a lonely pioneer couple - they love her as their longed-for child - and she brings them a love of the wildlife and wild country of Alaska. The story is a rare snapshot of frontier life that illustrates the deep pleasures that the environment provides as well as the hardships.
