One great idea; two unforgettable books

Meet the terrific Alaska Native kids from Children of the Midnight Sun (1998) and its recently released sequel, Children of the First People (2019). The Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center hosted our release event, and we welcomed broadcast journalist Rhonda McBride. Roy and I remembered the challenges of setting up interviews and traveling to farflung villages and towns around our supersized state with so few roads. After interviewing me and Roy, Rhonda caught up with kids, some from each of the books published two decades apart, who were able to attend. McBride’s story appeared on KTVA-TV’s Sunday magazine, “Frontiers with Rhonda McBride.” (All photos © Roy Corral)
