FAIRBANKS - Henry David Thoreau’s book “Walden: or Life in the Woods” is one of my favorite books. Being born and raised outside of Alaska, I fantasized about a place where I could unplug from the world. Alaska is not the setting in this book, but in my mind it is the perfect place to contemplate life. Thoreau said, “If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” I believe this statement exemplifies the Alaska lifestyle and attitudes toward others.
