Homesteaders in the Headlights: One Family's Journey by George Harbeson, Jr

Homesteaders in the Headlights: One Family's Journey by George Harbeson, Jr

Regular price $ 18.00

George (Sr.) and Katy Harbeson, filled with the pioneer spirit of adventure, left their home for a 5,000-mile trip by car to Wasilla, Alaska. 

So began the family’s fifty-nine year (and counting) ramble with Alaska. They arrived in Wasilla in late August 1954 and by 1959 George Sr. filed homesteading papers on a small isolated but scenic parcel near Knik.

In Homesteaders in the Headlights: One Family's Journey, George Harbeson Jr. recalls a firsthand account of the Harbeson and other families’ experiences in the years of homesteading in Alaska.
