Synopses & Reviews
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.
