What do you get when...
You just survived 7 months locked in your house at minus 20 with 2 cats and 2 dogs and 4 guinea pigs and the people that live with you?
The sun hasn't set for 96 days and the only thing holding up your eyelids is toothpicks?
Your life priorities revolve around cutting firewood, shooting food and not at least a half dozen sled dog races?
You get this book, and all the wonderful, disturbing realities of living in Alaska.
I'm sure you've probably said it a time or two. Alaska did this to me. Isn't it nice to have someone to blame?
Brookelyn Bellinger's second book, Alaska Did This to Me, is a delightfully funny follow-up to her first book, The Frozen Toe Guide to Real Alaskan Livin'; Learn How to Survive Moose Attacks, Endless Winters, and Life Without Indoor Plumbing, which has a perfect 5-star rating to date. With comic essays, journal-style ramblings, and self-depreciating humor, the author begs you to enter the mind of an Alaskan in all seasons, if not for therapy, then to save her from herself.
This book will be personally autographed and shipped by the author!
Chapter Titles include: 1) Winter, 2) After Winter, 3) July, 4) Almost Winter, 5) Girl in the Woods, 6) Small Town News Nostalgia, 7) Completely and Totally Unnecessary, 8) Dear Crazy Lady.
