I got an e-mail today from UAF offering me a TAship for the full 2007-2008 academic year - including the Fall! And of course, I've accepted. This is great news. Now I can focus on other finanacial aspects of the trip, like paying for the airfare and acquiring a nice suitcase.
Mike and I went to the Huntsville Public Library today and I picked up two Alaska books:
- The Great Land: Reflections on Alaska edited by Robert Hedin & Gary Holthaus
- Alaska 24/7: Amazing Photographs of an Extraordinary State from the 24/7 series created by Rick Smolan and David Elliot Cohen
I'll post the book musings here as soon as I've finished them.
