Sometimes I stop at garage sales. Looking for books, or quality used tools, or boaty bits, or... who knows. Yesterday, I picked up a small book - for $1. I'm glad I found it.

"Canoeing in the Rain"

The author - Ann Fox Chandonnet is a transplant to Alaska. Moved to Chugiak several decades ago. Eventually adopted an 8 year old Athabascan boy. The poetry is about life in Alaska... about adopting a native... and about the too-often grim reality of that culture.

I recommend it... and not just for our Alaskan brethren.
