Adventure writing at its best A brave young woman travels to a small Alaskan outpost in the early 1900s to serve as a teacher to nine young students Tisha is how the Indian children pronounced the word teacher thus the title of the book I found Tisha whose real name was Ann to be admirable on many levels brave vivacious and intelligent Her big heart compelled her to teach Indians as well as the white folks and this brought her to odds with the school board and the respected members of the community Courageously Ann took in two orphaned Indian children as her own setting off a firestorm of outrage that nearly cost her position When those children were kidnapped an exciting chase on dogsled ensued a suspenseful chapter that left me nearly breathless Tucked in with the adventure are descriptions of the Alaskan wilderness that paint a picture of stark pristine beauty in the mind's eye A great read with a happy ending

Anne Hobbs is a prim and proper 19 year old schoolteacher who yearns for adventure She finds this and much in a town with the unlikely name of Chicken located deep in the Alaskan interior It is 1927 and Chi. One of my top shelf favorite books of all time and a true story which takes place in Alaska in the late 1920's I re read this book every few years and never grow tired of it It has all the elements to keep the reader hooked adventure living with hardship through a frigid Alaska winter dogsled races a student who perseveres despite a reading handicap the heroic teacher who loves her students and despite all bravely stands up to a community with a rigid backwards way of thinking racism Anne does what she knows is the right thing despite the personal cost of disapproval by the locals in power In addition to all this a pure romance blooms that nearly breaks your heart Inspiring and ultimately satisfying Just as in Tisha's life my love and I had to wait 12 years until we were able to get married This book may be recommended for ages 12 through 112 I just finished reading it again this time to my 13 year old daughter She was amazed that someone could chose to teach and live in a place so cold and far away from any shopping malls I guess kids today have it too easyThis book is a winner that will transport you to another time and place Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did

Tisha by Robert SpecH one A heartwarming story in the tradition of Benedict Freedman's classic Mrs Mike Tisha is one of those rare books that stays with the reader for years beckoning to be read again and again Maudeen Wachsmi. Reads like historical fiction by a debut author For example in a novel we would learn why Vaughn automatically despises the Indians so much But irl Anne never found or figured it out so we can only guess But at the same time we do learn interesting historical perspectives culture technology for example the role of 'pay dirt' in gold miningNot my usual fare often bleak or frustrating and fairly long but very nice for a change of pace
