A moving memoir of a native Alaskan. I would have given it a 3 1/2 if I could have. He clearly portrays the conflict between the attempted "take over" (my words) of Alaska from the native peoples by those who "knew what was best" (my words) for the people. Mr. Hensley's account of what is like to from up in the far north is gripping and a celebration of the spirit of native Alaskans. A good read.
