This book was a recommendation of one of my co-workers Marinda. It’s a YA level book. Easy to read in an afternoon. And yet, it has a striking amount of depth. It’s the story of two old women who are part of a nomadic tribe in Northern Canada/Alaska area. In the culture, when food is scarce, it is not uncommon to leave the old and sick behind to better use the resources of the tribe.
The story is about two old women who are left behind, and decide they don’t want to die. It’s a story about survival, forgiveness, and appreciating life. It reminded me that the best way to facilitate success is to allow every member of a group to contribute. Most people have way more to offer than they even know.
This book is simple, beautiful, and well worth the read.
