Just as the Alaska spawning salmon swim upstream, so did this single woman swim against the current of a society that expected her to fit the mold of wife and mother. When this rite of passage eluded Anna Bortel, she did not bemoan her singlehood.MoreJust as the Alaska spawning salmon swim upstream, so did this single woman swim against the current of a society that expected her to fit the mold of wife and mother.

When this rite of passage eluded Anna Bortel, she did not bemoan her singlehood. Instead, in 1954, this young school teacher drove up the Alaska-Canada Highway from Ohio to Valdez, where snow was measured in feet and an Easter Egg hunt unheard of.Her curiosity wasnt quelled.

She pushed farther north to an Athabascan village along the Yukon River. Drafty Quonset huts with freezing oil lines at 50 below zero added to her teaching rigors. Discouraged? Yes. Daunted? No.Youll smile, laugh, and shake your head in amazement as you read these heartwarming, inspiring, and captivating stories of teaching in the Territory of Alaska.This is one of four books (released in 2011/2012) in Gaede-Penners Alaska, non-fiction Prescription for Adventure series.

Currently available is From Kansas Wheat Fields to Alaska Tundra: a Mennonite Family Finds Home. Next out will be Alaska Bush Pilot Doctor and A is for Anaktuvuk Pass: Teacher to the Nunamiut Eskimos. All Prescription for Adventure books are stand-alone.
