This book began as an online journal, but readers quickly asked that it be made available in book form. As the one year anniversary of the journal approached, editing began on such a volume. The result is a collection of inspired essays, anecdotes, and observations which tell the story of a year of life in Alaska and reveal the hidden goodness to be found in everyday life. Described by one reviewer as, “...so simply true that at every point it opens to the universal...” it spans an enormous range of experience: from light-hearted humor to thought provoking poignancy.

Jun 4, 2009This book is a remarkable acheivment. A Journal kept online for a year which is a coherent book ,and that is an acheivment for starters, since many internet journals sputter and go off in various directions and have no more substance than a cloud of soap bubbles, but it is more than that--it is the honestly observed and recorded life of a woman of deep reflection and humor and sensibility, and kindliness I would add -- and the observation is so unselfconscious that it has the inner truth which novelists reach for in 'stream of consciousness'writing. a truth from a particular life, in a special place, Alaska, a small town, the geese and the moose around and the flowers and cats and the driving to town and so on, but so simply true that at every point it opens to the universal...

May 3, 2009"Moose Mug At High Noon by Barbara Kelley" This is the second book I have purchased by this author. I like the straight forward manner in which it is written, telling the truth about what life is like in rural Alaska where the author lives with her cat and five geese. Living in the lower 48 I have not had many of the experiences this author writes about which are part of daily life, such as a moose appearing from out of nowhere. One of the most appealing aspects for me is I like the collection of short stories taken from the author's blog. I am not tied to long chapters where it is easy to lose my place when reading or limted by time. It's very convenient to read one or more and put the book down without being left hanging mid-story. The sensitive and down to earth approach of the author is another attraction, as this book is not a work of fiction but of real life in Alaska. An excellent addition to my private library.

Oct 12, 2007"Many stars deserved!" Barbara's writing is like poetry, and one can immerse oneself in her quiet world and come away feeling that she lives a beautiful life, for all its challenges. Her appreciation of her most interesting world, from the path to the goose house to the snow-covered road, makes for vivid and intimate reading, and a friendship.
