    Critics and readers claim Aunt Phil's Trunk Volume Three is a must-read for anyone interested in Alaska's history!

    Award-winning author Laurel Downing Bill has another winner in Aunt Phil's Trunk Volume Three. This volume is filled with entertaining nonfiction short stories and hundreds of historical photographs that bring to life Alaska's history from 1912 to 1935. Appropriate for ages 9 to 99, this book is a delightful journey through Alaska's growing pains as a territory of the United States.

    Readers follow along as men with axes, hammers and mauls pound a path through the Last Frontier to lay railroad tracks that connect the deep-water port of Seward in the south to the territory’s interior town of Fairbanks in the north. Adventurers, aviators and farmers then blazed their own trails through Alaska’s wilderness.

    Did you know:
    • The Alaska Railroad spurred the birth of Alaska's largest town in 1915
    • Mushers and dog teams risked death to deliver life-saving diphtheria serum to Nome in 1925
    • Famous aviator Wiley post and Will Rogers crashed their plane and died near Barrow in 1935

    These and dozens more little-known stories fill the pages of Aunt Phil's Trunk Volume Three.

    Bill has an extraordinary eye for the telling detail. She knows a good story when she hears it and knows how to tell it. Her history comes alive through her mastery of storytelling and close to 350 historical photographs.
