Where The Sun Swings North reproduced by Aunt Phil’s Trunk

Alaska’s first published author was Florence Barrett Willoughby who wrote Where The Sun Swings North in 1922. Critically acclaimed at the time, this fictional tale of a family marooned on a tiny island in southeast Alaska during gold-rush days rings true as it is based on the author’s first-hand experience in 1897-1898.
