Description: Perhaps the most beloved book ever published by Council Oak is Libby, the personal journal and sketchbook kept by Elizabeth Beaman during 1879, her incredible year as the first white woman to live on the Alaskan Pribilof seal islands. Available for the first time in a Council Oak trade paperback, this new edition, complete with reproductions of Elizabeth Beaman's original drawings, journal pages, and letters home, is a fascinating true story of romance and adventure.

Libby Beaman appeared to be a proper Victorian lady, but her private diaries reveal the stubborn strengths which propelled her and her husband on a perilous journey to the remote Alaskan Pribilofs. Here the two were forced to live in a small cabin with her husband's powerful superior officer. All around this unwilling triangle the raw life -- punctuated by the cries of mating seals -- released animal passions, passions which threatened Libby's conventional marriage, and, ultimately, her life.

Not only is Libby's story a remarkable find, but her accompanying drawings, done while she was in the Alaskan Pribilofs, are exquisite.
