Author Visit with Melissa Cook

Saturday, January 22, 2022

Author Melissa Cook will talk about and sign her new book, “The Call of the Last Frontier: The True Story of a Woman’s Twenty-Year Alaska Adventure.” 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. This tale is sure to delight Alaska and adventure fans.
