A Woman who went to Alaska, by May Kellogg Sullivan (1902) is available for free in a bunch of different formats from Manybooks. I haven't read it, but it looks interesting. (If it's half as good as An Island to Oneself I'll be happy.)
This unpretentious little book is the outcome of my own experiences and adventures in Alaska. Two trips, covering a period of eighteen months and a distance of over twelve thousand miles were made practically alone. In answer to the oft-repeated question of why I went to Alaska I can only give the same reply that so many others give: I wanted to go in search of my fortune which had been successfully eluding my grasp for a good many years.
