Synopsis: Discover the land, sea, wildlife and people on Alaska's largest island in this stunning pictorial. Kodiak is most famous for its brown bears and abundant wildflowers but there is more to the story of this rugged island. Carol Sturgulewski's lyrical text also explores the roles of fishing, climate and history of this crossroads of cultures. Over 100 photos, many taken by local island photographers, will show you a side of Kodiak that you never knew existed.
About the Author: Carol is an award-winning writer on the state and regional level. She spent nearly 20 years as a writer and editor for Alaska's three largest newspapers and several smaller papers, specializing in features and education. She also worked as a newspaper magazine writer in Michigan before returning to her Alaskan roots.
When not occupied as a full-time mom, Carol continues to do freelance writing and editing for newspapers and other publications, such as Alaska magazine. Carol has also led writing workshops for students from grade school through college, and taught journalism for the University of Alaska.
The daughter of one of Alaska's U.S. senators and the wife of a construction engineer, Carol has moved 15 times and lived in nine different communities across the state, from big-city Anchorage to the remote Aleutian fishing port of Unalaska. Her familiarity with her native state has helped in her work for regional guidebooks, including Frommer's and Alaska's Best.
Carol firmly believes that every person can make a difference in the world. A committed volunteer, she has served on the boards of Unalaska Community Broadcasting, Unalaska Senior Citzens and the Alaska Women's Commission. She is a former president of the Alaska Press Club. She has also worked with programs to support literacy, education, children's interests, and more.
Carol and her husband, Roe, now live in Anchorage, Alaska with their sons, Ben, Ted and Hugh. Their backyard is popular with moose, bears, rabbits, wild berries--and a few select "weeds".
