The Cobbs remind me so much of my wife and I. Throughout the book it seemed like that they could not catch a break a day late and a dollar short.I just seems like we can never catch a break either. I call it German luck.

In the book, Norma Cobb was the last pioneer woman to take advantage of the homestead act in Alaska. The Cobb family is like any hard-working American family of the 70's, struggling to find their place, achieve their dreams and are willing to sacrifice and work hard to get to where they aspire to be.

I love it she does not sugarcoat anything just tells you the way that it is and how she feels. This book is quite the roller coaster of an adventure. I know that it is not for everyone.

The Cobbs are an instriation to me and my wife in that follw your dreams and SOMEDAY it can be true.
