Publisher Comments:

June Burn's 1941 classic continues to capture the imagination of readers who long for the adventures that few people will ever have the nerve nor the time to undertake.

Courage, gaiety, and a fresh approach to life are reflected in this unconventional autobiography. It is a story of twentieth-century pioneers as resourceful as ever they were in the days of the old frontier. June Burn and her husband Farrar determined to go their own sweet way, enjoying first hand living and not surrendering to the routines of a workaday

world. Through the years they had some high and glorious adventures, which included homesteading a gumdrop in the San Juan islands of the Pacific Northwest, teaching Eskimos

near Siberia, and exploring the United States by donkey

cart with a baby aboard.

I've read this book once and am looking forward to reading it again. It's very interesting to read about June and Farrar's lives back in the 1920 and 1930s. They homesteaded for awhile, then led a gypsy life for many years. You will really enjoy reading this book if you admire independent people who don't mind living outside of mainstream America.
