Yes, it’s that time again – the cruelest month. The rainiest month. The dewdropiest month.

We have some fantastic poetry books available, including the recent Echo of Ice Letting Go by poet Julie LeMay. Grab that and others from our poetry section!
I leave you with a poem by that “Bard of the Yukon”, Robert Service. Enjoy!

Alaskan author and master gardener Verna Pratt has passed away. Her classic Field Guide to Alaskan Wildflowers has been a popular and supremely useful guide since its first publication back in 1989 and is still being reprinted today. A lovely, knowledgeable lady who will be missed!
You can read Mike Dunham’s article in the ADN about Verna here.
We are very sorry to note the passing of military historian and author John Cloe at the age of 78. He was a great guy and we enjoyed working with him on his last book, Mission to the Kurils. He had an impressive knowledge of military history in general and Alaska’s role in World War II in particular. It was a pleasure and privilege to help him realize his vision!
