"Welcome to Alaska, the Last Frontier" says the sign at the border. And frontier it is, even in the 1960's when young Natalie's family, all six of them, are struggling to survive in a trailer with the thermometer registering 60 below. Since the events in this harrowing childhood memoir are described out of sequence, it would be easier to read the book than to listen to these tapes. But that would mean missing Barbara Caruso's fine narration . . . a great loss. Especially memorable: her lovely singing of one of the family's road songs at a moment of deep sadness.
