Why This Book
I met a wonderful blogger about three months ago who I began exchanging emails with each week, chatting about books, life, and many other topics. After a while, she casually mentioned her book, which of course led me to reading a little more about it and her. I recently started a new segment on my blog called 'Author Alert,' where new authors can share a message with my friends and followers - Atwood Cutting, author of Where the Moose Slept: An Account of Two Late-20th Century P

This is a most charming and engaging retelling of some of the author's family stories. I was fascinated with the spirit, stamina and bravery (!) Cutting's parents must have possessed to trek out into such a harsh wilderness and create an independent life of their very own. This was the first of a trilogy--there is more to this story, and I will be getting back to it later!

I'd recommend this to anyone--and you will find out how the author got her name.

Atwood Cutting is the daughter of Tim and Kate Peters, pioneers in Alaska during the 1970s and '80s. That was before there were cellphones, four-wheelers, or solar panels. It took years for electricity and water to come.

The Peters family left the homestead in 1988, when Atwood was nine. Her mom said they'd "seen the elephant" up close, and it wasn't worth it to stay. After that, Atwood listened in
