About this title

Synopsis:

A collection of twenty stories showcasing the supernatural legends and unsolved mysteries of Southeast Alaska, with a focus on the region between Yakutat and Petersburg, where the author has lived his entire life, writing, teaching, guiding, commercial fishing, and investigating ghost stories. Each chapter is rooted in Bjorn’s own adventures and will intertwine fascinating history, interviews, and his reflections. Bjorn’s writing, sometimes poignant and often wickedly funny, brings to mind Hunter S. Thompson and Patrick McManus.

Chapters touch on legends such as Alexander Baranov, Soapy Smith, James Wickersham, and the Kóoshdaa Káa (Kushtaka) to lesser known but fascinating characters like “Naked” Joe Knowles and purported serial killer Ed Krause. From duplicitous if not downright diabolical humans to demons of the fjords and deep seas and cryptids of the forest, Bjorn presents a lively cross-section of the haunter and the haunted found in Alaska’s Inside Passage.

From the Author:

For the maximum experience, read the twenty stories in consecutive order. Some are fun, such as crusty fishermen who've tangled with sea monsters, my search for Sasquatch that ends in a casino, and the ghost of a nude survivalist with a zeal for publicity. Others will leave you wondering, such as the disappearance of fifteen sailors during first contact between Russians and Tlingits, the tales of the Koshdaa Ka haunting the rain forest, and the curious case of Alaska's first supposed serial killer. Some will break your heart, like the spirits of Mount Edgecumbe Hospital, or the sinking of the Princess Sophia and the ghosts of gold rush prostitutes said to still be at unrest. All in all the book offers a window, for local and visitor alike, into the murky history of Southeast Alaska. Hopefully it will leave you haunted.
