Front Cover
Inside Page

  Gordon Stoddard headed up the Alaska Highway in 1950. "Go North, Young Man tells of his first four years as a homesteader on Alaska's Kenai peninsula. With wit made sharp by frontier life, he presents this exactly as he found it." Building his first cabin in three days, guided by a "How to Build a Cabin" pamphlet, he later has a fancy cabin with a mail order stove to keep his malemute, his food and his feet warm. Neighbourhood celebrations follow his installation of running water and lights.
