Aunt Phil's Trunk Volume Four is a must-read for anyone interested in Alaska's history!
Award-winning author Laurel Downing Bill continues to bring Alaska history alive in the fourth volume of her Aunt Phil’s Trunk series. Following in the fast-paced and entertaining footsteps of the previous three volumes, Volume Four captures the essence of life in Alaska between 1935 and 1960.
This book’s easy-to-read nonfiction short stories – along with more-than 350 historical photographs – highlight major events of World War II, the Cold War era and Alaska's struggle for statehood.
Did you know:
• The Japanese bombed and occupied two islands in the Aleutian Chain during WWII
• The United States had a secret mission with Russia in Fairbanks
• Eskimo Scouts volunteered to guard more than 2,000 miles of Alaska's coastline
These and dozens more little-known stories fill the pages of Aunt Phil's Trunk Volume Four.
This collection of stories combine clear writing and plenty of details without getting bogged down in minutia. They include both the big stories and many lesser-known incidents. And they are densely illustrated with photographs showing what life was like in Alaska's earlier days.
