I have only this morning finished reading Though Not Dead which I enjoyed more than others concerning Kate and her adventures. It was fascinating how you incorporated Alaskan history (of which I know very little about) into this special book. “Uncle Sam” was quite a man, in all senses of the word!!
When you consider he wrote from Australia to my large print publisher in Maine, who then forwarded the letter to the Homer Bookstore, who then passed it on the next time I was in town, I find it kind of astonishing that it only took 17 days to reach me.
My reply took a more direct route.
