A new book Good Company : A Mining Family in Fairbanks, Alaska by Sarah Isto starts this Friday April 28th, 12:00pm-1:00pm. Segments will be recorded and available on line.
Good Company is a vivid and compelling story of life in early twentieth-century Alaska. During the lean years of the depression through World War II and Vietnam, Sarah Isto's family made a home in "company housing" in the small mining town of Fairbanks. With a wry sense of humor and an eye for detail, Isto tells of the courtship and marriage of her parents and her own Fairbanks childhood, weaving rich descriptions of daily life and northern living into her story. Good Company celebrates the joys and challenges of family life on the Alaska frontier.
