A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework, and anything else I can think of.
A very good, if rather episodic, look at Alaska's history from the prehistoric to the modern, with lots of details and personal stories. Great for the armchair or actual traveler. Proved to be very useful for me in planning my upcoming trip to the 49th State.
