Boom Town Boy

Sale price$14.95


This is the witty,irionic, and deliciusly outspoken coming-of-age memoir of Jack de Yonge from Fairbanks, AK - a once thriving mining town slowly dying in the the remote center of the vast territory.

Then World War II breaks out, and the Japanese attack Alaska. The sleepy little river town springs back to life with the arrival of thoulsands of U.S. soldiers, Russian lend-lease pilots, and construction workers who keep the red-light district romping and the bars rocking around the clock.
