Boom Town Boy
Coming of Age on Alaska's Lost FrontierBook - 2010
A coming-of-age memoir from Fairbanks, Alaska--a once thriving mining town slowly dying in the remote center of the vast territory. World War II breaks out, and the Japanese attack Alaska. The sleepy little river town springs back to life with the arrival of thousands of U.S. soldiers, Russian lend-lease pilots, and construction workers.
