"Two Old Women: An Alaska Legend of Betrayal, Courage and Survival" by Velma Wallis. This is a hybrid program – attendees are welcome to join virtually via Zoom or in-person in the Meeting Room at the Warren Township Library branch.
"Based on an Athabascan Indian legend passed along for many generations from mothers to daughters of the upper Yukon River Valley in Alaska, this is the suspenseful, shocking, ultimately inspirational tale of two old women abandoned by their tribe during a brutal winter famine. Though these women have been known to complain more than contribute, they now must either survive on their own or die trying. In simple but vivid detail, Velma Wallis depicts a landscape and way of life that are at once merciless and starkly beautiful. In her old women, she has created two heroines of steely determination whose story of betrayal, friendship, community, and forgiveness "speaks straight to the heart with clarity, sweetness, and wisdom."-- Ursula K. Le Guin
