Norma Cobb was the last woman pioneer under US Homesteading Act. A Kansas gal that moved to Alaska raising her family of 5 children in remote isolated pioneer country of interior Alaska. 27 in 1973, she started the biggest endeavor of her life--homesteading the heart of Alaska's remote country. Lived 31 years in Alaska before moving to Sedona, Arizona to retire after divorce from Les Cobb. Her first 20 years were pioneer living with last 10 years progressive modern life--electricity, water, and satelite tv. Alaska is still her utopia with all it's adventure, challenges, country, freedom. Her heart thirsts for it daily!
