“The photographs are amazing, a rich visual context for the stories collected from the staff and Jesse Lee children. … This is a historical gem, with copies of rare editions of the JLH newsletter the Kueuit, personal letters … and even music.” Cynthia Ritchie in First Alaskans.

“People live in so many houses over their lifetimes―it's not the structures they remember so much. It's the happenings, the stories. ... This book is the best memorial to the Jesse Lee Home.” ―Esther Munson Ronne, founding member of the Qutekcak Native Tribe, original board member of the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, Jesse Lee Home resident (1935-1942).
