Parallel Destinies: An Alaskan Odyssey
by Judy Ferguson
You are purchasing a good copy of this book. It has light wear. Judy has autographed it on the title page.
Destinies is the bigger story of the Alaskan Interior's development. It
focuses on civilization's hub in the century's first half and now an
Alaska state park, Rika's Roadhouse. Featuring over one hundred archival
photographs, the book cameos the Athabaskan Indian and Yugoslavian
cultures intersecting in the development of the great Tanana River
valley between 1867-1969. The roadhouse's builder, John Hajdukovich, was
the window through which the Interior's development may be understood.
John was the law, a trader and the life support system to the Upper
Tanana Native. He was the creator of the federal Tetlin Reserve and the
Interior's most competent big game guide. Between 1904-1942, this Big
Delta roadhouse was the hub of civilization between Fairbanks and the
Fairbanks Daily News-Miner editors,
Patricia Watts and Dermot Cole, valued the uncommon quality of the book,
printed in Belgrade. The graphics artist, Dragan Miskovic, is one of
Belgrade's best and imported from Spain heavy high-gloss paper for the
spectacular photographs. Judy Ferguson is a free lance columnist for the
Fairbanks Daily News-Miner Heartland magazine. Parallel Destinies
develops the historical, special connection, the mystique between Alaska
and the Slavic East. This book portraits the parallel destinies of the
Balkans and Alaska, the Last Frontier.
