In this quirky memoir Kristina recalls unique experiences in her job, to seeing UFO's in the Alaskan sky, and even building her own log cabin. This easy-to-read, spunky book allows readers to slip into a world where it's so cold cars don't start, finding some place warm to stay is near impossible, and friends will do anything to help each other.
