    The Call of the Wild is a short adventure novel by Jack London, published in 1903 and set in Yukon, Canada, during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush, when strong sled dogs were in high demand. The central character of the novel is a dog named Buck. The story opens at a ranch in Santa Clara Valley, California, when Buck is stolen from his home and sold into service as a sled dog in Alaska. He becomes progressively feral in the harsh environment, where 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.

    “Fresh, fun and romantic.”—SARAH MORGAN, USA Today bestselling author of A Wedding in December

    How the moose (almost) stole Christmas.

    Lana Montgomery is everything the quirky small town of Moose Springs, Alaska can’t stand: a rich socialite with dreams of changing things for the better. But Lana’s determined to prove that she belongs…even if it means trading her stilettos for snow boots and tracking one of the town’s hairiest Christmas mysteries: the Santa Moose, an antlered Grinch hell-bent on destroying every bit of holiday cheer (and tinsel) it can sink its teeth into.

    And really…how hard could it be?

    The last few years have been tough on Rick Harding, and it’s not getting any easier now that his dream girl’s back in town. When Lana accidentally tranquilizes him instead of the Santa Moose, it’s clear she needs help, fast…and this could be his chance to finally catch her eye. It’s an all-out Christmas war, but if they can nab that darn moose before it destroys the town, Rick and Lana might finally find a place where they both belong…together.

    Among Grizzlies: Living with Wild Bears in Alaska

    Categories: alaska Tags:


    Price: points - Details)


    Living with Wild Bears in Alaska

    “A heart-stopping eco-adventure, a testimony to both the grizzlies and their courageous protector.”


    People

    “The grizzly bear is one of a very few animals remaining on earth that can kill a human in physical combat. It can decapitate with a single swipe or grotesquely disfigure a person in rapid order. Within the last wilderness areas where they dwell, they are the undisputed king of all beasts. I know this very well. My name is Timothy Treadwell, and I live with the wild grizzly. . . .”

    After Timothy Treadwell nearly died from a heroin overdose, he sought healing far from the trappings of civilization–among wild grizzlies on the remote Alaskan coast. Without gun, two-way radio, or experience living in the wild, armed only with the love and respect he felt for these majestic animals, Treadwell set up camp surrounded by one of nature’s most terrifying and fascinating forces of nature.

    Here is the story of his astonishing adventures with grizzlies: soothing aggressive adolescents, facing down thousand-pound males, swimming with mothers and cubs, surviving countless brushes with death, earning their trust and acceptance. In these incredible pages, Treadwell lives a life no human has ever attempted, and ultimately saves his own. To share his experience is awesome, harrowing, and unforgettable.

                                                            

    “LIKE AFRICA NATURALIST JANE GOODALL, TREADWELL GIVES PERSONAL NAMES TO HIS SUBJECTS. . . . Bears have distinct personalities, Treadwell shows, and as a group, individual roles become clearly defined by gender, size, and age.”


    The Seattle Times

    With twenty-nine photographs

    The Drive in ’65

    Categories: alaska Tags:


    Price: $7.99
    (as of Jan 22,2021 03:42:45 UTC – Details)


    In 1965, two sisters packed up their five children and their mother-eight people-in a nine-passenger van and traveled North America for fourteen weeks. After living in Alaska twenty years, they wanted to see more of the world, and show their children what lay beyond Alaska’s borders.

    Sandra Lynne Reed was thirteen that summer. The tiny town of Moose Pass, and the southern edges of Anchorage, one hundred miles north, defined Reed’s provincial childhood, and left her curious about the world she saw in magazines and on television-strange places that were her own country. In a summer of ‘firsts’ she and her siblings discovered the magic of fireflies, natural wonders, and treasures of history. On their tinny transistor radio, they followed news of the space race, the Civil Rights movement, and the escalating war in Vietnam. The musical sound track of the British invasion and the rising rock and roll era followed them as they circled North America, traveling as far south as Mexico City.

    The courage of her mother and aunt, undertaking an international adventure in a day when women could not obtain a credit card or serve on a jury, provided an example to all their children.

    Like the Good Friday earthquake had done in 1964, the Drive in ’65 shook up her world, exposing shocking poverty and racial divides and lighting a fire in her for further travel but also weakening fault lines in her family that no one had predicted. Using a trove of letters and memorabilia, and her own memories, Reed has recreated the adventure of a lifetime in The Drive in ’65.

    “He who holds Alaska holds the world.” – U.S. Army General Billy Mitchell, testimony to Congress, 1935
