About the Book

Kodiak Tales: Stories of Adventure on Alaska’s Emerald Isle, investigates the many-faceted experiences of living on Kodiak Island. Shipwrecks, plane crashes, bears, and Kodiak’s often-harsh and unforgiving environment are among the challenges facing the archipelago’s hearty residents.

            The eight short stories in part one range in time from pre-Russian days to the present and examine humans’ role in Kodiak’s natural realm. The five non-fiction pieces in part two are a personal testament to life in Kodiak’s backcountry.
