The Alaska chapter is going well. I'm loving writing it, and I'm making a huge To Do Research list as I go. Some gaps to fill in, but all in all, it's a lot of fun.
I've been spending a bit of time and a little bit of money on ebay, buying some more books on Siberia. I need a whole bookshelf to house them.
Lillian Alling was a fascinating woman, who accomplished a remarkable feat, during interesting times, and met a whole bunch of eccentric people on the way. I will sure miss her when the book is done.
