Following the Alaskan Dream: My Salmon Trolling Adventures in the Last Frontier
The book Following the Alaskan
Dream chronicles the salmon trolling adventures of its author,
Marilyn Jordan George, who left the Iowa farm country to marry a
Norwegian fisherman in 1946. Living on their fishing vessel, they
raised four children in the Alaskan wilderness while meeting its
challenges and absorbing its beauty. George's story preserves the
heritage and spirit of the pioneer lifestyle of southeastern Alaska
as it was lived during the mid-twentieth century. Project materials
include an audio cassette, a printout of Ms. George's web pages,
and a copy of her book.
