Author Visit with Melissa Cook
March 12 @ 11:00 am
Take a walk through the wilds of Alaska with local author Melissa Cook as she gives a gripping talk about her new book, The Call of the Last Frontier: The True Story of a Woman’s Twenty-Year Alaska Adventure. Cook will be at the Meeteetse Library on Saturday, March 12 at 11:00 a.m.
In 1995, Melissa Cook and her young family moved to the tiny village of Nelson Lagoon on the Bering Sea coast and later to Prince of Wales Island in the Tongass National Forest, where they measured rain in feet. She discovered humor in unique situations found only in the Last Frontier. Her true story captures the essence of bush life, intriguing neighbors, and life with multiple sclerosis. Historical tidbits are sprinkled throughout this riveting tale where adventure arrived on the Cook’s doorstep daily for twenty years in this world of few luxuries or conveniences. Her visit is sure to delight Alaska and adventure fans.
Books will be available for purchase. If you’d like to read it first, you can check it out at the Library.
