Tisha, The Story of a Young Teacher in the Alaska Wilderness
by Robert Specht
- 342 PAGES
- YOUNG ADULTS
The as-told-to autobiography of Anne Hobbs, who in 1927, at age 19, accepted a position as the only schoolteacher in Chicken, Alaska. Called "Tisha" by her students, Anne unwittingly enraged the white townspeople by consorting with Alaskan natives; but with grace, determination and bravery she continued to act as she thought right. This compelling book is a marvelous portrait of pre-statehood Alaska -- and a wonderful read. Ages 11 and up.
