Favorite Places in Alaska:
I am torn between two places--the the inlets and passages of SE Alaska and the ocean, hills, streams, and valleys of the Seward Peninsula.
I came to Alaska from the Puget Sound area in 1961 and for ten years combined teaching and salmon trolling, mainly in Southeast. I moved to Western Alaska in 1971, again to teach, also adult education and administration. Summers have been mainly setnet fishing near Nome, other subsistence, and lots of hiking, cross-country skiing. I'm always writing. Currently I have a manuscript being reviewed by a University Press: "Rough Waters: Our North Pacific Small Fishermen's Battle for Survival; a Fishing Family's Perspective"
Rough Waters: Our North Pacific Small Fishermen's Battle -- A Fishing Family's Perspective (nonfiction), Far Eastern Press, 2015
Beachlines: A Pocket History of Nome; (social history) George Sabo, 1997.
Orchards of Eden: White Bluffs on the Columbia: 1907-1943; (social history) Far Eastern Press, 2006.
