Alaska: The Land of Men and Money

by Joanne Hawkins Who would believe that a city girl from the Midwest could find herself starting a new life in the wilds of pre-pipeline Alaska? Some towns had ratios of 20 bachelors for each single woman. Playing sing-along polka music made her the life of the party and being a skilled pool player allowed her to relieve many an unattached man of his money. Her tales of the people she met along the way will leave you laughing out loud.
