Biographies of Alaska-Yukon Pioneers 1850-1950, Volume 5, Ed Ferrell

1 Biographies of Alaska-Yukon Pioneers 1850-1950, Volume 5
Ed Ferrell
2004, 5x8, paper, 306 pp, Heritage Books
This work fills the void by making obscure and un-indexed material available to researchers in Alaskan and Canadian history and genealogy. Volume 5 contains additional biographies, alphabetically arranged and full of fascinating information and family history. It is rich in Northwest history, and should appeal to researchers in the West and Northwest whose ancestors may have been Alaska-Yukon immigrants. Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco were points of departure and return; some of the immigrants settled in those regions after trying their luck on the frontier. The majority of these early Alaskans came to the territory between 1880 and 1910. The main sources used for this compilation were newspaper obituaries and magazine articles. Each biography is followed by one or more citations naming the publication from which the information was obtained and listing the original date of publication.

2 The Dangerous North
Ed Ferrell
1998, 5x8, paper, 160 pp, Heritage Books
A new collection of hair-raising true tales about pioneers in Alaska, the Yukon and the northern Pacific region. It was a hardy breed of men and women who opened up the last frontier, and they tell some amazing survival stories. The author has selected 26 accounts of death and survival that chronicle the harsh realities of life on the northern frontier. These accounts were found in newspapers and magazines. Here are their stories, often in their own words. This is the North you will never read about in the travel brochures.
