May 30, 2012 - PRLog -- Author Sam Neumann has released his first ebook, "Memoirs of a Gas Station: A Delightfully Awkward Journey Across the Alaskan Tundra."

Available on, the book is the lighthearted true-story of Neumann’s summer “working” in a gas station in Denali, Alaska. Often satirical, sometimes introspective, and always brutally honest, "Memoirs" takes you through the best and worst summer of one man’s life.

From booze-soaked employee parties to a strange romantic episode in a tree house, Neumann learned more about the Last Frontier than he ever intended.

“I showed up in Alaska without a clue that I was going to be working full-time at a gas station,” Neumann said, “when I found out, it pretty much ruined my will to live. In the end, that summer made a huge impact on my life, just not at all how I’d expected.”

Weekends spent stumbling through seedy Alaskan bars and hitchhiking to remote destinations gave him a unique perspective on life, and led the author to find friendship, adventure, and love in the most unexpected places.

“It’s an entertaining read for anyone interested in seasonal work, traveling, or the stupid things people do in their twenties.”

"Memoirs of a Gas Station" is currently available as a Kindle ebook for $2.99 at
