Description


The Harbeson family was hard to miss in Wasilla, Alaska, in the mid-1950s and the '60s.

George and Katherine Harbeson were deeply involved in the Valley community, from basketball

to the Mat-Su Bookmobile, the Wasilla Library, and the Wasilla-Knik-Willow historical museums.

George, a dedicated teacher, was also an influential figure in education and local and state politics.



George Harbeson Jr. writes of his parents' early lives and the family's years in Knik and Wasilla

with a focus on the universal challenges and rewards of homesteading. Within the framework of school and community activities are tales of friendships and folly, recalcitrant vehicles, basketball dreams, rabbit-hunting cats and faithful canines, wildlife and home life.
