This Raw Land is a sequel to Wayne Short's The Cheechakoes, and tells the adventurous story of his bringing his bride north to Alaska-and their raising of a family on a lonely island in the Alexander Archipelago.
Short who skippered a commercial fishing boat during the summer season and wrote when the snow closes in on the mountains, tells a fascinating true tale of life known to only to a few.
The book is quick reading from start to finish; an evening haunted by the lonely cry of a loon, of humor and danger in an isolated life that is a part of the Alaskan heritage.

The Cheechakoes was so popular that my publishers suggested a sequel, and so I began This Raw Land, the story of my marriage to Barbara-and what happened after I brought her back to Alaska to share our isolate lifestyle.
