Cabin 135, A Memoir of Alaska

by Katie Eberhart

Cabin 135 is a house that was built for the Matanuska Colony. Living there for many years, the author became fascinated with the accumulation of layers. The house anchors this book, a collection of threaded stories, to a particular plot of landscape in the Matanuska Valley. 

Whether semi-tamed garden, national park, or forest, nature meanders through the stories in this book. As does memory, that thread that ties each of us to our past. The terrain of this book includes garden and yard, but also more distant places where enticing moments offer insights to how we live and survive. 

Cabin 135, A Memoir of Alaska by Katie Eberhart forthcoming from University of Alaska Press in 2020.

      Abby,
      Thank you! You’ll find the stories very interesting. Fascinating, in fact. The book also has a map by Ruth Hulbert. Ruth created posters for the Alaska State Fair and she has very large paintings at the Fred Myer store in Palmer and at Machetanz Elementary School.
