    I started this book during a speed dating project and decided to try to finish all those books I dated and decided to keep and finish before the end of 2015 This is a fascinating account of one year in a life of the first white American woman to travel to the Pribilof Islands Her granddaughter created this book through her diary, letters, and some artifacts there are drawings, paper, and ephemera pictured throughout the book The only reason Libby even travels to these islands is to accompany her [...]

    Elizabeth Libby Beaman is the first non Aleut woman to arrive in the Pribilof Islands off the coast of Alaska in 1879, and causes a HUGE stir in the primitive village of St Paul The book is an edited compilation of her very private journal, sketches and letters home to her family From the perspective of a woman in the middle of a man s world this book is interesting But from the historical perspective of the United States new acquisition of Alaska and the multimillion dollar fur industry that ha [...]

    While in Alaska I bought a book about a woman who travels to Pribilof Island in the Bering Sea during the late nineteenth century around the time of the Civil War It was is true story of her life growing up in Washington D.C and falling in love with a wounded soldier They aren t properly introduced so their love affair remains a secret For years they wait and contrive a way for him to be introduced They almost die during the winter A riveting story with lots of descriptions of the wildlife and e [...]

    Libby Beaman was a woman who knew what she wanted and let nothing stand in her way She did it with grace, tact, and passion Her courage and bravery are amazing The sketches of her journey to the Pribilof Islands are treasures So talented and skilled in her observations, it s a beautiful journal that I m glad was retrieved and published

  9. Jen Stutesman

    A little overly wrought and histrionic, but interesting descriptions of the Pribilofs right after Seward.
