    Bruder, to his credit, pretty much allows the veterans to tell their own stories. While several books about Alaska's bush pilots are available (e.g., The Bush Pilots, Time-Life Bks., ), this is a particularly valuable collection of reminiscences of a bygone era. For aviation buffs and true adventure readers. A very well written book. A fascinating topic of a family who lives on a secluded Alaskan island making their living as salmon fishermen. At times the book weighted down with the weight of the work and the difficulty of relationship. I I needed a little more light and beauty. Still, I'm glad I read this one.4/5(30).

Letters From Happy Valley: Memories of an Alaska Homesteader’s Son, by Dan L. Walker. Ember Press, pages. No roundup of Alaskan literature would be complete without a mention of a piece by Jack London. The Call of the Wild was London’s first book—he’d go on to write more than 50 fiction and nonfiction works about Alaska over the next 17 years.

He’d come to Alaska not to write, though. Instead, he’d hoped to strike it rich panning for gold. The first book deals with the story of how our sleuth, Meg, acquires the orchard.

The next one deals with Meg learning how to operate the orchard. This third one deals with what is happening on the farm during the time just after the harvest. A blizzard dumps 3 feet of snow on the area just when our Meg’s old furnace goes out. And while everyone—truly, everyone—has stories to tell, sometimes it’s the stories we can’t tell that may resonate; the ones we have to search for, feel rather than see, that come forth.

Just because I am not relating specific details of memories of my mother in this passage, it was worthwhile for me to write—cathartic, yes, but.
