"Alexander Archipelago" - Big Alaskan Wilderness Is Backdrop to Big Short Stories

Alexander Archipelago
Alexander Archipelago
SAN FRANCISCO - May 12, 2014 - PRLog -- What do you do during long Alaskan winters to keep your mind active? Some write stories that are just as magnificent as the vast surroundings. Set in the lush ambiance and grandeur of the earth’s largest temperate rain forest, this eclectic collection of 12 short stories offers a picture album of life in Alaska’s Tongass National Forest.

From the story in Chapter 4: This was a phenomenon experienced in the dead of winter while at the author’s dacha on Baranof Island. The weather outside was malevolent with a wind factor that brought the temperature down to well below zero. Comforted by the warmth of the stove and a glass of Tennessee whiskey, while listening to Schumann’s “Waldszenen,” the author dozed off. It was in this state of mind that he recognized their midnight visitor was Percy, a former fiancé of his wife, Sophie. It wasn’t until the following spring that they learned Percy died two weeks before his visit.

The nonfiction narrative in Alexander Archipelago presents dramatizations of adventures in a forest of big trees, big birds, big fish, and big bears, where immense peaks are wrapped in great glaciers that break off into bays and fjords where big whales spout. The peaks are capped by perennial snows to form the highest coastal mountain range in the world, rising abruptly from salty coves. This abundant landscape is enough to swell the soul and humble the ego. It also makes for grand stories!
