  • 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.

    1960-1984

    $19.95

    Second Edition with easy-to-use grading system. Winner of 2019 Silver Medal in Education from Literary Classics International.

    ISBN 978-1-940479-26-2

    This fifth book in the Aunt Phil's Trunk Alaska history series highlights the first 25 years of statehood through short stories and hundreds of historical photographs. Not only did the optimistic citizens of the Great Land create a government from scratch in just a few years, they also dealt with many challenges. Aunt Phil's Trunk Volume Five shares firsthand accounts of survivors who experienced the 1964 Good Friday earthquake and the devastating tsunamis that followed that 9.2 temblor. It also features stories about the discovery of “black gold” on the North Slope in the late 1960s, and how Alaska's Native people fought for their land and won the largest settlement ever granted Native Americans. That agreement cleared the way for oil companies to build an 800-mile pipeline through some of the most rugged and remote country in the world during the 1970s.

    Alaskans also learned that evil lurked under the midnight sun in the 1980s, as they ended the first 25 years of statehood with six mass murders.
    • Women in Anchorage became prey when a mild-mannered baker turned into a butcher.
    • Residents of Manley Hot Springs disappeared soon after a drifter arrived in their quiet town.
    • And several citizens of McCarthy died when a newcomer decided he wanted to destroy Alaska's oil pipeline.
