      The oldest son of an adventurous family relates their true life experiences of pioneering on an Alaskan island after World War ii. His first book, The Cheechakoes, told of coming to the southern tip of Admiralty Island, an abandoned whaling plant at Murder Cove, just after the end of World War II. With him were his parents and two brothers. They lived a typical Alaska life style; fishing, hunting, trapping, gardening, berry-picking, and found it satisfying.

        “The Cheechakoes” by Wayne Short. Just after a young Navy veteran returns home from the south Pacific, Wayne Short moves with his family to an island in Southeast Alaska. The story, titled after the word for newcomers to Alaska, is a story of family, adventure and the pioneer spirit that brought so many people to Alaska.
