Little House in the Rain Forest is a sequel to Kathy’s popular book, Little House in the Arctic. It, too, is a true story packed with adventure and written for “children of all ages.” After five years in Fairbanks and one year “outside,” Kathy’s family felt the draw of the north and returned to Juneau in the Southeast panhandle of Alaska. Juneau is enchanting and beautiful; its backyard of ancient glaciers and world-class mountains is breath-taking and spectacular. During their years in Juneau, though, Kathy’s family faced major challenges that could have destroyed a less determined bunch. You will be captivated as you read about plane crashes, ship wrecks, and murder that came all too close to home. In Juneau, Kathy and her older brother faced issues of life and death, along with the day-to-day struggles of approaching adolescences and adulthood. Little House in the Rain Forest is a story that will ring a resonant tone with all its readers.
