About the Book

Ruby Gaede expected to be a Kansas farmer's wife, snuggled safely into a Mennonite community with her relatives, milking cows, and gathering eggs. What happens when her husband climbs off his tractor, goes to medical school, and becomes a bush pilot doctor in the middle of Alaska? She makes a home, cranks homemade ice cream on the frozen Yukon River, sings Christmas carols at 40 below, serves moose roasts, and seeks tips from the Native women on how to keep her four young children warm in the winter.
