Homestead, Pennsylvania, was the city Andrew Carnegie built to make steel. William Serrin has written an extraordinary book, the result of an obsessive passion. For a century it made its mill owners fortunes and armed America through two world wars. I couldn't help think of Timothy Egan's recent book Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher: The Epic Life and Immortal Photographs of Edward Curtis. Egan's book tells of the life of Edward Curtis, who gave his all over another obsession: capturing the traditional lives of the American Indian before they disappeared forever.

Reviews about Homestead Kid (7):

We met the author's parents during our recent travels and short mission trip to Alaska - Reading the original book purchased at the "Arctic Circle Trading Post"put the icing on the cake to the great visit we had with the Carlson's. I appreciate the great values protrayed in the book.
I purchased this used 2nd copy thru amazon for a family member ( The condition of the copy was every thing as it was advertized )

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would definately recommend it to someone that loves stories about homesteading or doing things the "natural way". It amazes me that these people raised as many kids as they did and still managed to find time to have fun as a family.

This book is a wonderful and accurate description of growing up in Alaska during the homesteading years. I really enjoyed her story of her life. It was great!

I know the homestead Cherie talks about. I've been their guest and I became their friend. This book is authentic. Reading through the episodes will give you a bit of a picture what life in the heart of Alaska is about. Thanks, Cherie!

Excellent account of how they survived in the wilderness

I had the good fortune to stop at the Homestead Kids homestead in Joy,Alaska on our tour to the Artic Circle. It is everything Ms.Curtis claims. The book was filled with stories that were humorous and also scary.
Many people on the tour bus bought Homestead kid at Ms Curtis's childhood home and most of us were finished reading by the end of the tour. Old and young alike-it was amazing to hear all the response about the book from strangers. I enjoyed the book very much and so did all the other tour bus readers.
I must add that it was a hundred and ninety eight mile tour on a dirt road from Fairbanks to the Artic Circle...And it was worth every bump!

I trecked all the way from Australia up to Alaska and the Arctic Circle and that is where I met Joe and Nancy in Joy Alaska and picked up this Fascinating Book. The book is the like the people, Adventurous, Kind, Interesting and is a lesson to us all about what we can achieve if we dare to take chances and follow our dreams. Having met Joe and Nancy I could not recommend this book enough so sit down in front of the fire and do yourself a favour and immurse yourself in the story of this couragous Family and their adventures and dreams.
A well written, very entertaining and interesting memoir of life in the Alaska bush in the 1970's from a child's perspective.
