Homeschooling on the frontier

The Last Frontier is about a homeshcooling family up in Alaska who live way off the grid.

Here is a description of the blog:

This site is about life in the Alaskan Wilderness --- The Last Frontier. My husband and I are bringing up and homeschooling our boys on our remote homestead in the Alaskan bush. There are no roads to this part of the state. We charter a bush plane a couple of times a year for mail and supplies. We haul our water from a spring, cook on an antique woodburning cookstove, hunt, fish, grow a large garden, put up food, and gather wild plants for food and medicine. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to live in the Alaskan wilderness, then read on. It's remote. It's peaceful. Sometimes it's a hard life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

It is a different world.

Very cool! Thanks for sharing. I have a friend who lived this way in Alaska for a good part of her childhood.
