Chirping Iceworms and Noah's Ark; It was all "Grist for the Mill" to Klondike Newsmen

Anchorage, AK: Main Sequence, 1993. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. 16 pages, plus covers. Illustrations. Cover has some wear, soiling, and sticker residue on the back. Signed by Anne Darrow on title page. The author grew up in Cordova, Alaska while it was still a Territory. This was part of the Penny Books initiative to share some of the stories and old time spirit gleaned from their years in this great land. The author was privileged to know some of the type of people who came to this wild country. These were the people whose decisions to stay molded what Alaska and Alaskans were become. Newspapers were highly regarded during the Gold Rush. Their news served as a link with faraway home or simply as diversion and entertainment in the midst of a tough existence. When newspapers came on boats or were hauled over passes, they became valuable commodities. Being among the first to establish a newspaper in the remote locations of the gold discoveries was a gold mine in itself. Condition: Good.
