About this title
Romantic, history-filled names have long fired the imagination of every reader and visitor to the Northland. In Alaska-Yukon Place Names, author James W. Phillips takes the vacationing tourist, historian, and armchair traveler through the most memorable places in the Alaska-Yukon region. Since the most popular routes north to Alaska and the Yukon are the Marine Highway and the Alaska Highway through Canada, the entries of Alaska-Yukon Place Names include ghost towns, islands, waterways, mountains, and glaciers in northern British Columbia. Whether more interested in the scenery, the historic past, or the fabulous yarns connected with the area, you will be delightedby the colorful towns of Alaska and the Yukon--Poorman, Shaman's Village, Chicken and Eek--and will have no trouble imagining the mettle of those pioneers who traveled Moose Pass, shot Squaw Rapids, or panned in Pure Gold Creek.About the Author:
James W. Phillips, a former newspaperman, is a free-lance writer whose article and stories have appeared in numerous regional and national magazines. He is coauthor of Sourdough Sky: The History of Bushpilots in Alaska, and the author of the regional bestseller, Washington State Place Names.
