What Real Alaskans Eat

That is why food killed, caught, or picked in their state is so highly prized by Alaskans. A cook since he was twelve, author J. Stephen Lay's recipes are authentic and mouthwatering.

What Real Alaskans Eat

J. Stephen Lay has crafted an unusual recipe book that will entertain and delight while causing your mouth to water ... well, MOST of the time. When you add the fish to a recipe for Eskimo Ice Cream, you might have second thoughts about desert. The author's recipe for brussels sprouts, which he hates beyond reason, borders on slander against this poor, defenseless vegetable.

Travelers  Tales Alaska

In Travelers' Tales Alaska, contemporary adventurers, seekers, and lifelong Alaskans take you into the "Last Frontier" for wild and poignant adventures. Walk among bears, witness the Inupiat taking of a bowhead whale, and spend time "weathered-in" on the Bering Sea coast. Follow the seasons of commercial fisherfolk in the world's most dangerous seas, sail the Inside Passage, or flight-see with bush pilots famed for high-stakes navigation around Denali, North America's highest mountain. Discover the 49th state’s quirky side, including an entire town that lives in a single World War II-vintage high-rise, a "Hairy Man" who roams the Bush, and backcountry gourmands who communicate with edible plants. Drive the Alaska Highway or head north along the pipeline Haul Road to the Arctic coast, not simply to get there, but to be there. Get the inside view as Alaskans share their stories of learning a new land or guiding tourists through Native culture. Whether you choose camping at Wal-Mart or casting for grayling on a lake named Paradise, whether you travel the Great Land in actuality or in your armchair, these stories bring Alaska alive, in all its latter-day complexity and glory.

Alaska Is My Mistress

Alaska's Allure-Beautiful and Dangerous Jerre Wills ... After we played a couple of games, we were ready to relax and eat some meat and drink something cold. The Sundogs are real Alaskans and treated us like royalty ...

Alaska Is My Mistress

Jerre Wills was in his late teens when he began feeling something tugging at his shirt-tail, and finally pulling with the force of a 300 pound barn-door halibut heading for deep water on the end of a fishing line. Whatever the powerful pull was, its 5,000 mile beckon, brought the young Wills family to Alaska in March of 1959. First it was the homestead; hunting soon followed; commercial fishing, an improbable occupation became a passion; and becoming a pilot and flying small bush-planes was justified by guiding big game hunters. All of these adventures gave Jerre an appreciation for Alaska's land, sea, and air. Alaska's allure became a 55-year love affair with the Greatland. Alaska Is My Mistress is the story of Jerre Wills' non-stop Alaska seduction.

Long term Ecological Change in the Northern Gulf of Alaska

This comprehensive text is a major synthesis on ecological change in the Gulf of Alaska. It encompasses the structural and annual changes, forces of change, long-ecological changes in the atmosphere and ocean, plankton, fish, birds and mammals, and the effects of the 1989 Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. With 5 major sections, Long-term Ecological Change in the Northern Gulf of Alaska first describes the physical features, the atmosphere and physical oceanography, the annual production cycle, the forage base for higher animals and trophic transfer, and the adaptations for survival in this changing environment for 9 portal species. Then, the major forces of change are introduced: climate, geophysics, fisheries and harvesting, species interactions, disease and contaminants. Next, the long-term records of change in physical factors and biological populations are presented, as well as the potential reasons for the biological changes. Following is the history of the Exxon Valdez oil spill and its long-term effects. And, finally, the emergent properties of the ecosystem are discussed and an attempt is made to weigh the importance of the major forcing factors in terms of their temporal and spatial scales of influence. * Examines important data on long-term change in the ecosystem and the forcing factors that are responsible for it * Provides an account of the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill with emphasis on the long-term effects * Describes the effects of climate change, geophysical change, species interactions, harvesting, disease, the 1989 oil spill, and marine contaminants on key populations of marine organisms

A Grammar of Central Alaskan Yupik  CAY

The volume is a major grammar of Central Alaskan Yupik (CAY). It is the culmination of the author's linguistic studies done in Alaska and elsewhere since around 1960, with assistance of many native speakers. Central Alaskan Yupik is currently the most vigorous of the nineteen remaining Native Alaskan languages. Descriptive in nature, extensive and deep, this grammar is of typological and of ethnological/anthropological interest. Given the severely endangered state of the language, this much of descriptive linguistic material is without comparison in the field.

Alaska Sourdough

Clyde Charles “Slim” Williams (1881-1974) first arrived in Alaska in 1900 at the age of 19, looking for adventure. He spent the next three decades trapping, hunting, breeding dogs, and blazing trails throughout the frontier. The paths of two rugged adventurers crossed and the result is wonderful entertainment. Pioneer Alaska Sourdough Slim Williams told his life’s story to Dick Morenus, a city-bred man who had lived in the Canadian bush. Because both spoke the language of the North, this story captures the drama and thrills just as Slim experienced them. After reading Alaska Sourdough, you will be as glad as Dick and Slim are that they were fortunate enough to meet.

Alaska Hunting

I put both hind quarters of my bear in the back for eating and sharing with neighbors. Few Polar bear hunters brought any meat at all back to town which seemed unconscionable to me. Local Eskimos loved polar bear meat.

Alaska Hunting

Alaska Hunting: Earthworms to Elephants, a collection of 39 stories, is intended to be seasoning for a Hunters' pie, rural Alaska style. Most hunters extol the charismatic mega fauna, but pursuit of lesser game often takes center stage. Occasionally hunting discoveries lead to other endeavors, from jade mining to gold prospecting and fossil recovery. Possibilities are limitless. As we engage in hunting and fishing pursuits memories are laced with the big ones--the exceptional, genetically endowed giants--but some of the brightest memories are of average representatives of their species. What made them so memorable was the combination of circumstances under which they were taken--or lost. Companions, whether human or animal, often make the hunt memorable and its recollections of trophy quality.
