Touching the Clouds by Bonnie Leon is set in Alaska in the 1930s. The main character, Kate Evans, is a airplane pilot in the days when aviation was still a new thing, and it was a particularly unusual occupation for a woman. As the story opens, Kate is getting ready to leave her home in Yakima, Washington (an area I'm familiar with) to fly alone to Alaska (an area I've always wanted to visit) to become a mail-delivery pilot. I found the story fascinating, especially the details and danger of each of her missions. It's a romance novel with action! Fun read!
