Ruffles On My Longjohns
Witty, whimsical, this is a firsthand account of homesteading in the remote Bella Coola Valley. For a woman in a world of men, isolation had a very special meaning. She coped - lovingly, laughingly - and regales the reader with her memories.

It was an autobiography of a woman and her husband who lived out in the wild and roughed it all their lives. It was interesting because I will probably not ever be exposed to such danger from wildlife, and I felt like I could experience a little of it vicariously.
I liked this book! It was a little bit slow to read because it is written with such detail. The adventures Isabel had homesteading in the Bella Coola Valley were fascinating. This book was like sitting and listening to a grandmother "spin yarns" (as Isabel would say) around a fire.
