In anticipation of our upcoming release of The Alaska Highway: 75 Years, StarkLight Press is revealing one of our special insert pages that accompany the main narrative. Here is the final page of our section on Rusty Dow, the Chief Engineer of the project and first woman to drive the Alaska Highway. This insert was written by Virginia Carraway Stark.
In addition, here is the first page of our excerpt that explains the nature of Muskeg to our international audience- this insert was written by Tony Stark.
There are additional pieces written by Krista Michelle, Maude Welles, Will Norton, Jonny Wakefield of the Alaska Highway News, Leanne Caine, Joyce Lee, as well as personal remarks about the importance of the Alaska Highway from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Premier Christy Clark and Dawson Creek Mayor Dale Bumstead.
Look for this beautiful, collectible book coming from StarkLight Press in March of 2017. All proceeds from this remarkable work are being donated to local arts councils, museums, historical societies and to Pioneer Village in Dawson Creek, B.C.

Albert Einstein with aliens? Dark, mysterious Gods seducing Alexander the Great? Only the beginning of the tales you’ll find in this remarkable collection- available from the StarkLight Press Bookstore, or through this link via Amazon
