Terpischore Johnson and her family are living their home in Wisconsin to start over in Alaska as part of President Roosevelt's initiative to settle the land. She's always dreamed of being Laura Ingalls Wilder and now she's going to get her chance. But, when the Johnsons arrive in Alaska it's not what anyone is expecting.

There are no buildings, every is living in tents and sharing an outhouse. A mole eats her shoelace on the first day of school and her mother is determined that they won't stay. Terpischore is determined to make things work in Alaska so she helps start a library, and hatches a plan to make her mom want to stay in Alaska.

Terpischore's plan is going to take all her energy and the help of her friends and family to convince her mom that Alaska is where they belong. This is an entertaining look at pioneer life in a fascinating time of American history.
