Between Two Poles by Shirley Kurth Schneider is an interesting Alaskan memoir from early Statehood days. Ms. Schneider began writing as a diversion while mothering her children in an outmoded log enclosure in Fairbanks. Later, she received her BA in Journalism from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.
Ms. Schneider's memoir is not about the traditional beauty of wild Alaska; instead, it is a story about regular folks who had the desire, and the courage, to remain in a place considered America’s Siberia. With the word "frontier" ringing in their ears, the complete everyday projects. Their lives are recorded from the viewpoint of a woman who would have had no interest in settling in Alaska if it hadn’t been for the man to whom she was married. Ms. Schneider was a continental America woman who gave up her family and friend support groups to build a new life in Alaska. The building of a new life would include the self-construction of the very home she would live in.
