About the Author

JILL SHEPHERD has worked for The Tundra Times, The Anchorage Times, and has spent the last twenty years at Alaska magazine.


Taken from the pages of Alaska Magazine and its predecessor, The Alaska Sportsman, these stories represent 67 years of work by Alaskan writers. The tales are as diverse as the writers themselves, ranging from a memoir piece by a nurse who managed a hospital in Barrow in 1921 to a present-day account of a bear-watching trip to Mount Katmai by mystery writer Dana Stabenow. One chapter recounts the exploits of the 97th Division of the Army Corps of Engineers, an all-black unit that helped build the Alaska Highway in 1942-43. Another tells the frightening tale of a man trapped beneath a capsized fishing boat in the Gulf of Alaska. Selected for their clear depiction of Alaska, past and present, the 59 stories are accompanied by reproductions of Alaska Magazine covers dating from 1935 to 2002. A noteworthy addition to any travel collection owing to the unique nature and diversity of the material. Mary V. Welk, Chicago Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
