Northern Light Media


Original Northern Light Media logo

 Northern Light Media publishes Alaskan History Magazine and books by Helen Hegener about the history of Alaska and the Yukon Territory, from the earliest explorations by the hardy explorers and intrepid pioneers, to the first sled dog races, building the Alaska Railroad, and establishing roadhouses across the northernmost frontier. The original website is now a blog linked to this books site, and you can access it at the blue link above.
