MIDNIGHT SUN, ARTIC MOON by MARY ALBANESE (Epicenter Press, 2012, $14.95) is a memoir of Mary’s quest to live in Alaska.  

From an early age, Mary dreamed of living in Alaska.  When her plan to teach didn’t work, she pushed on to discover the world of geology.  She not only challeneged the wilds of Alaska, she became one of the few women in a male dominated field.  The beauty, adventure and hardship  of life in Alaska is told, not only through Mary’s experiences (including a hair-raising encounter with a bear), but through the stories of the  people she meets.  

Simply written, It’s an inspiring tale of the costs and rewards of following a dream.  It’s a book I would hand my teenage daughter and say, “Permission to dream, granted.”     4.5 ¨
