Small Moccasin Tracks: Memories of an Alaskan Mountain Family is the first book of memories from Hilda Luster-Lindner of growing up in Alaska during and after Territorial Days. Johnny Luster, the famous hunting guide and mountain man, was Hilda’s father. Her mother, Lillie, lived primarily alone in the wilderness, giving birth to most of her children in very primitive conditions, some under trees, and raised them in the wilds of the Last Frontier. Through hardships and tragedy, blizzards and summer flooding, the Luster family lived in the great outdoors or in small trapper cabins, surviving on what was gathered from the land. While life was extreme and often difficult, they found love and happiness. Learn their secret as you journey back in time to a simpler life, wild and rugged where each day was a battle for survival. This newly revised book has more pictures and memories! Available July 19th.
Today our nation celebrates it's birthday. The Declaration of Independence was a document that changed not only the United States of America, but the entire world. We honor the great sacrifices of our forefathers and those who have served throughout the centuries to keep our nation free and live the values we were founded upon. May God continue to bless America.
