Author publishes coming-to-Alaska tale

Posted: Thursday, June 28, 2007



Former Kenai Peninsula resident Ethel McMilin has published “A Cheechako’s View of Alaska” with Tate Publishing.

The book is about Beth, who finds herself moving to Fairbanks from Los Angeles after a whirlwind courtship and marriage. She realizes she must learn a new vocabulary, purchase a new wardrobe and fine-tune her survival skills if she’ll ever make it as a cheechako living in the outskirts of Fairbanks.

McMilin and her husband of 53 years, Jack, lived in Alaska for 14 years and recently moved to Ogden, Utah. They have five children, 16 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. She retired from the Bureau of Land Management as a computer specialist
