Judy Johnson – appreciation

Judy Johnson

Thanks to Francis Beckett, Judy Johnson joined TSL to publish her memoir of growing up in Alaska.
In Alaskan Pioneer Girl, Judy takes us back in time to the 1950s when Alaska was umdergoing change – we read of the challenges of dealing with snow in the forest, fishing and school in more built up areas.
Scattered throughout the book are numerous recipes with an Alaskan flair – this reflects Judy’s later interest in cooking. I’d suggest sitting back to enjoy a time gone by in Alaska but you might well want to do a bit of cooking or baking first…
