As a student myself, writing my notes by hand helps me process the information as well as remembering it as I write it down. There is no boubt…

    government’s colonization project against its management. These pioneers went to Alaska from drought area of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan. “Did these settlers expect they were going on a nice vacation?” Dimond asked. “They knew that hewing out a frontier was not easy, that they would have to work. I suspect some of them are just beginning to realize their venture was not a lark now and the glamour of adventure in a new land has worn off.” (“Alaskan say tales ‘silly’,” 1935, p. 1 & 2) …
