A new book is about to be published about life on the Kenai Peninsula. Written by those who have lived the history of the Kenai, the book entitled "The Road We've Traveled," is a project of the Kenai Peninsula Historical Association that features some twenty different chapters and over 400 photographs that chronicle early events of Peninsula communities.
"It's exciting to see the growth and history that is represented in the book. We can look back at the very beginnings of Soldotna. Its like archeologist Alan Boris said, we're the last community to be settled by agrarian expansion. The photos are wonderful, will bring back warm memories to many, as well as teach anyone interested in knowing about our Kenai Peninsula," said Katherine Parker, author of the Soldotna section and a member of the Kenai Peninsula Historical Association committee. Other well-known travelers of the road who contributed to the new book include Alan Boris, Mona Painter, Mary Ford, Diane Olthuis, Frances Brymer, and McKibben Jackinsky.
"The Road We've Traveled," which was several years in the making, is expected to be available in early November. Parker is presently taking pre-published orders at $15.00 a copy for the new book at local meeting places in Soldotna, or you can place an order at her map shop by calling Katherine at 262-4580. It's anticipated the retail published price will be in the range of $20.00.
