Good Company: A Mining Family in Fairbanks, Alaska (Paperback)
"Good Company" is a vivid and compelling story of life in early twentieth-century Alaska. From the lean years of the Depression through World War II and Vietnam, Sarah Isto's family made a home in company housing in the small mining town of Fairbanks. With a wry sense of humor and an eye for detail, Isto tells of the courtship and marriage of her parents and her own Fairbanks childhood, weaving rich descriptions of daily life and northern living into her story.
With grace and perception, "Good Company" celebrates the joys and challenges of family life on the Alaska frontier.
