New anthology of Alaskan environment writing by Alaskan residents

A new collection of essays and poems on Alaska’s environment is just out in bookstores. “Crosscurrents North: Alaskans on the Environment” was inspired by the fact that there are no other anthologies written entirely by Alaskans about Alaska’s environment. Marybeth Holleman is a co-editor of the collection. She says the writers had to have been Alaska residents for at least a decade so that those who read these works, regardless of where in the country they live, will be able to find relevance to their own lives within the pages.
