Rick of High Ridge

Rick finds out that his family has decided to move to Alaska, to homestead land and start a new life. This story shares an excellent tale about how they drive up to Alaska, and search for the perfect place to find their new home. Meeting other fellow Alaskan's help the family find land and start building a house. There has been some other conflicts throughout the story that the family will have to rise to the occasion for. This journey made me realize some of the true hardships that new Alaskans had to face when moving to the great state.
