History and Humor of Alaska
"Penny Books" Stories from the REAL ALASKA!
Lone Janson arrived in Alaska in 1945 as an adventure-seeking young girl. She has worked railroads, canneries, cooking, and commercial fishing alongside many of the old-timers she has written about. But through all her adventures, she has always been a journalist; first and foremost. Lone's many books and articles, through the years, have established her as one of Alaska's foremost historians.
Now you too can own a piece of this rich Alaska history. These stories have been carefully written to preserve the special flavor of the way the old-timers themselves told them. So full of rich Alaska history, yet wonderfully funny as told by the men and women who actually lived it.
