Following the 2016 election, writer Heather Lende (author of Find the Good) was one the thousands of women inspired to take a more active role in politics. This book follows Heathers time as an assembly woman in the small town of Haines, Alaska, and how she dealt with everything from a bitter debate about the expansion of the fishing boat harbor to the matter of how to stop bears from rifling through garbage on Main Street to the recall campaign that targeted three assembly members, including Lende.
