    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.

  • The Spell of the Yukon and Other Verses

    $14.95

    Award-winning author Laurel Downing Bill heard the call of her Alaska history fans and has reproduced Robert W. Service’s The Spell of the Yukon and Other Verses.

    This book pays tribute to one of the North Country’s most beloved poets and shares his first published collection of poems that debuted in 1907. This specially created book also features a biography of the Bard of the Yukon, written by Downing Bill, complete with photographs.
    Even though he never lived in Alaska, Service helped put it on the map for most people with ballads like “The Shooting of Dan McGrew,” “The Cremation of Sam McGee” and “The Call of the Wild” – all included in this special collection of poetry, which now is part of the public domain.

    Service felt a connection to the land and the people of the North and later told a newspaper that the nine years he spent in the Yukon (1904-1912) were “some of the happiest” of his life.

    “All the things I am and have, I owe to the north.” Service said in the late 1940s.

  • The Call of the Wild and Other Northland Stories

    $19.95

    Published in 1903, The Call of the Wild is an American literary treasure. Set in Alaska and the Canadian Yukon Territory during the 1890s’ Klondike gold rush, this fictional tale opens when Buck, a dog that is part St. Bernard and part Scotch shepherd, is kidnapped from his comfortable home in Northern California. He soon finds himself heading north where large, strong sled dogs are in high demand.

    Buck learns to adapt to the frozen, arctic land. Over time he loses the social skills he had as a prized pet of a California judge. Instead he learns to live by “the law of club and fang,” as he is forced to fight to survive and dominate other dogs. By the end, he sheds the veneer of civilization and relies on primordial instinct and learned experience to emerge as a leader in the wild.

    Other London stories set around the rush for gold in this book include: “To Build a Fire,” “To the Man on the Trail,” “The Men of Forty Mile,” “The Son of the Wolf” and several more.
