The fifth volume in my Aunt Phil’s Trunk Alaska history series went off to the printers last week. If all goes as planned, it will be available before Thanksgiving!
This 448-page book, which will sell for $19.95, completes the series and features the first 25 years of Alaska’s statehood. Just like the first four books in the series, Volume Five (1960-1984) is filled with many short stories and more than 350 historical photographs that bring the history of the Last Frontier to life.
Stories in Volume Five include first-hand accounts of survivors who experienced the Good Friday earthquake of 1964, tales from the trans-Alaska oil pipeline building days and highlights of some “highs” and “lows” during those first 25 years as a state.
I will send out an announcement as soon as copies of Volume Five are available for sale!
