‘In Pursuit of Alaska’ Highlights State’s Earliest Visitors

Author and historian Jean Morgan Meaux lived in Alaska during the hectic and heady days of oil pipeline construction. She returned to her native Louisiana after many years here, but has never forgotten her adopted state. Meaux will travel through Alaska later this month to promote her book In Pursuit of Alaska, a collection of accounts of some of the earliest visitors to the Great Land, starting with John Muir.

She says she got the idea for the anthology many decades ago when she visited the rare book collection at the UAA library and found a book full of unique stories.
