"From the time I'd been a girl, I'd been thrilled with the idea of living on a frontier. So when I was offered the job of teaching school in a gold-mining settlement called Chicken, I accepted right away." Anne Hobbs was only nineteen in 1927, when she came to harsh and beautiful Alaska. Running a ramshackle schoolhouse would expose her to more than just the elements. After she allowed Native American children into her class and fell in love with a half-Inuit man, she would learn the meanings of prejudice and perseverance, irrational hatred and unconditional love. "People get as mean as the weather," she discovered, but they were also capable of great good. As told to reporter Robert Specht, her true story has captivated generations of readers.

This book began very slowly for me. I would read a chapter and then move on to read a different book that could hold my attention. About half-way through, though, it grabbed me. It was filled with so much action, I couldn't put it down. What would the people of Chicken do next? Would Anne survive? Would the love story find a happy ending? Mostly, I was left with appreciation of the people who populated Alaska, including, especially, the native Alaskans. ( )

Based on the true story of Anne Hobbs who traveled to Alaska in 1927, on horseback to become a teacher in the small town of Chicken, Alaska. Anne faces harsh weather and has some harrowing experiences as she finds love in this in this isolated wilderness. She takes in two children when their mother dies of tuberculosis. The boy calls her “Tisha” instead of teacher. She and her husband, Fred adopt the two children along with several others. This is one of 100 Favorite Novels Recommended by Librarians. ( )

Such a surprise to enjoy a book whose cover looks like a 1960s Mutual of Omaha/Doctor Zhivago romance novel. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) I read this for the community book club I'm in against my will (the reading, not being in the club).

But wow. It was so captivating! Put a young girl with open ideas in a remote town and set her loving acceptance against the racist ideals of a scared and small-minded clan. The struggle feels like it could've taken place in 2018 instead of in the 1920s. (Once again, thank you Trump and all who voted for him.)

Two things made this all the more wonderful: first, it's a true story and second, I read it when the temperature was 7 below. In the book they make reference to temperatures of 54 below or greater with nothing to heat the house but a small stove... I couldn't stop thinking of the fortitude of these pioneers (but even more so, the amazing survival powers of the Indians. Who we destroyed and continue to mistreat.)

Great read and I would recommend enjoying it on a blowy, freezy, icy night. ( )

I love this book, so glad my sister told me to get it.
I was gently laughing over the very, very light politics in this book.
I loved the diversity and lack of diversity of the characters. There are either three types of characters or two types and Tisha. I loved how Tisha dealt with racial problems.
Not to say that the beginning was slow or boring, (it wasn't), but the ending was super action-packed and exciting.
I don't want to move to Alaska, but I appreciate more now those who have. ( )

First read this book probably twenty years ago. Reminded me of CHRISTY. Simple tale of a very young and inexperienced teacher working with a mixed community of miners and Native Americans in the tiny town of Chicken, Alaska. It's a love story too, and the young heroine, Anne, has the temerity to love a mixed race man. Hey, it's a beautifully told simple little love story of life on the wild frontier nearly ninety years ago. I passed it along to my mom, who loved it so much she bought additional copies for her friends and ended up reading it several times herself over the years. And I didn't fault her for it; it's that good a story.

Last week my mother died. She was nearly 97. In the last months of her life she was making her way slowly through TISHA one more time, despite failing eyesight and crippling pain. I was reading the final chapters to her myself just two weeks ago. She could no longer speak, but she could still listen, and she would nod and smile at the by-now familiar words and passages. TISHA is that good. My mother and I thank Robert Specht and the book's heroine, Anne Hobbs, for telling the story of a young teacher from many years ago. My mother was a young inexperienced teacher herself just ten years later than Anne Hobbs was. She could relate, I'm sure.

Did I say that TISHA is a good book? Well it is. One that bears up well no matter how many times you read it. Highly recommended. ( )

Even though it was barely eight o'clock and the sun had just come up, practically the whole town of Eagle had turned out to see the pack train off.

I guessed I was never so happy in my life as around that time. Everything just seemed the way I'd dreamed it would be – the settlement and all the country around hushed under a thick white blanket, the snow dry enough so you could walk around in moccasins and never get wet. Now I realized what the North was really like. It was made for winter, because winter was when everything went on. You could ski any place you wanted to and get there twice as fast and twice as easily as you could before there was snow. People went out and brought in the trees they'd cut for firewood and left lying until they could use sleds to haul them. The whole country just opened right up. You could hear somebody talking on the trail half a mile away, or dropping a pan on the stove a mile from the settlement. It was so quiet and open and free that it was like being let out of prison. It put everybody in good spirits and they went around looking the way the country did – clean and fresh.
