  • The Call of the Wild and Other Northland Stories (ebook)

    Original price was: $6.99.Current price is: $2.99.

    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.

    Aunt Phil's Trunk Volume Five shares Alaska’s first 25 years as a state, including 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 and the building of an 800-mile pipeline through some of the most rugged and remote country in the world during the 1970s.

    “What an enjoyable read this was … There are black and white photographs on nearly every page, enriching the journalistic text. Chapters are short without being overloaded with too much detail. The end result is a nicely themed volume of all the big headlines from statehood to 1984.” – Connie, Top 500 Reviewer Amazon

  • The Iron Trail by Rex Beach

    $19.95

    In The Iron Trail, released in 1913, Rex Beach weaves a tale of romance and courage in the early 1900s as men struggled to build the Copper River and Northwestern Railway through the rugged wilderness from Cordova to the Kennecott Copper Mines.

    Beach closely followed actual events in this page-turning tale, including fierce gun battles, rights-of-way battles and battles against Mother Nature to lay 196 miles of track to the largest copper deposit known in the world at the time.

    BONUS: Laurel Downing Bill shares the real story in “Cordova to Kennecott” and captures the determination of railroad engineer, William J. Heney, upon whom Beach based his lead character, in “Alaska’s Irish Prince.” The rich, full life of Beach unfolds in “The Man Behind the Words.”

  • Kindness Journal, Ages 13+

    $5.99$9.95

    Every generation faces tough times – and I’m sure every generation sometimes thinks that darkness is always overshadowing light. That certainly seems to be the case as we enter the 2020s.

    There is so much derisiveness surrounding us in these modern times with politics, violence and catastrophic world events that it is hard to imagine things will improve any time soon.

    But I believe there is a way to make the world in which we live a better place. And every single person alive can help make it so. It all begins with kindness.

    If people began showing more kindness in their everyday lives, I think they could transform the planet into a happier place. It is difficult to be angry and argumentative if you are surrounded by kindness.

    Kindness can make the giver and the receiver feel so much better about themselves and the world around them.

    That is why I created this 30-day challenge journal with prompts for kindness to inspire you to become more kind to your family, friends and strangers. And I hope by the end of the 30 days, you find that you have been transformed, as well, into a kinder, more caring person.
