    Amazon 5 Stars
    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 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.

  • Where The Sun Swings North

    $19.95

    Published in 1922, Where The Sun Swings North is the first novel written by Florence Barrett Willoughby, who many call Alaska’s first official author.

    This tale of adventure is a fictionalized account of her family’s real-life experience when stranded on Middleton Island in the Gulf of Alaska for 10 months in 1896-1897 when Willoughby was 10 years old. They may have had few provisions, but they had an intense will to live.

    The cast of characters in this story includes a heroine and her Irish husband, a younger lady pure of heart, a drunkard and a diabolical trader who wants the Irishman’s wife for his own. Add to this group the elements of Alaska’s wildland and unpredictable weather and you’ve got a tale of adventure you won’t soon forget.


    Reviews

    “It is so true to the country about which it is written that even an Alaskan can read it and enjoy it.” – The Pathfinder, May 1922

    “It breathes the real Alaskan spirit. It is interesting and clean, like the great out-of-doors in the Northland.” – Sitka Tribune, December 1922

  • 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.”
