As I skied on a frozen river, a hairy creature trotted toward me. When the wolverine spotted me, it popped up in the air like an antelope, landed like a cat and bounced away into the high country of the Wrangell Mountains.

The first 16 years of Joy Prescott's life ranged widely: from her mother's Wrangell cult to the crochet her ex-mother-in-law taught her. Both have informed her life: It's the crochet that has a daily presence today, but the cult has left a lasting impression as well.

So many small islands in Southeast Alaska were dedicated in the 1920s and early 1930s to blue fox farming. It was fashionable in that era to wear fox fur coats, stoles, cuffs and collars. Two small islands, protecting Zarembo Island's St. John Harbor, nurtured foxes for their furs.

Last weekend I got to participate in my other passion, roller derby. I was invited to Petersburg to assist with coaching and assessing new skaters so that they could play their first public scrimmage. What a treat!

Remote canneries peppered Southeast Alaska in the days before transporting salmon in refrigerated vessels allowed processors to move operations closer to towns. The Bay of Pillars on the west coast of Kuiu Island was home to one of these canneries. This was one of the first locations to be fished in the southern part of Chatham Strait because of a stream that supported a run of sockeye salmon. The first cannery in the bay opened in 1890 and another was constructed in 1902.
