1 thought on “Painter and Ugly”
Alaskan sled dogs would be a great discussion and this book sounds like a good starter! I know a woman who used to teach in this district who married a man who took her to the outback of that state. Her letters to family and friends are unbelievable…as are her adventures! I’ll have to read this book!
