Stikine River Journal: Stories of Wrangell and the Stikine River Paperback – December 28, 2012
About the Author
Patricia Neal, while director and curator of the Wrangell Museum, developed a fascination for the Stikine River and Wrangell. Thus began over thirty years of researching their histories. Her “Stikceen River Journal” column ran in the Wrangell Sentinel for a number of years. Her articles have also appeared in Alaskan publications. Her research on local businesses, people who called Wrangell home in the late 1800s, and the Stikine and its river boats took place in many repositories at Victoria, B.C., Anchorage, Alaska, Seattle, and Wrangell’s public library. Early research was accomplished in Wrangell through interlibrary loan. Those were the days before the Internet! Her research notes are available in the Wrangel Public Library. Trish was involved in the Wrangell Totem Restoration and Replication Project during the 1980’s that included restoration of Chief Shake Tribal House. She lobbied the Alaska State Legislature for funding and wrote matching grants to fund the project. She was adopted into the Eagle Tribe by Sadie Campus and given the Tlingit name of Sadie’s aunt, Tsa Yaas. Trish currently lives in Oregon where she continues to share her historical research by posting information online and answering queries. She published her first book, Fort Wrangell, Alaska, Gateway to the Stikine River: 1834-1899 in 2007. This book is her second publication on the istory of Wrangell and the Stikine River. She has two more manuscripts in the works that will add to knowledge of Wrangell’s past. They include the history of the Wrangell Garnet Ledge and the all-woman corporation who operated the mine at the mouth of the Stikine River.
