The newest book from Northern Light Media, “I Wish You Could Come Too,” The Alaska Diaries of Dr. James Taylor White, 1899, 1890, 1894, 1900-1901 by Gary C. Stein, Ph.D., is now available for preview at Amazon.
The book is a first-hand look at life aboard a revenue cutter during Alaska’s formative early years, when the ships of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Revenue-Cutter Service patrolled the waters of the Bering Sea, the coast of Alaska, and the Yukon River. For several of those voyages a bright and engaging young physician, Dr. James Taylor White, served aboard and recorded his adventurous work in personal correspondence and journals, now made available by Dr. Gary Stein’s 40 years of research and writing.
The entire front matter for the book, including the Table of Contents, the Map and Figures listings, the Preface, Acknowledgements, Introduction, and the Prologue to Part I are all included to read free online, as is the complete Index. The Amazon Preview gives a good solid overview of the book.
Available from the publisher, Northern Light Media, also available from Amazon or your favorite bookstore, local or online!
