My honest review of the nonfiction account of one family’s Alaskan homesteading adventure – Coffee-Drunk or Blind by Elle Knowles, including (of course) the best quotes from the book.
My first thought when receiving this book was that I was probably not the target audience – I’m not incredibly outdoorsy, I hate being cold, I love modern conveniences, and I’ve never been that interested in moving to Alaska. But I opened it and started reading anyways – and I’m glad I did!
“I’m not sure why, but for as long as I can remember, I’ve always found myself a little sad on New Years Eve…” My thoughts on nostalgia, hope, and ideas for the future.
I opened the thick metal door and started down the corridor in search of unit 143.
