Jean Murray, the author of the book and the producer of this cd, arrived in Nome, Alaska in 1966, later moved to Fairbanks and now resides in Anderson, Alaska. A hike over the historical Chilkoot Trail and a holiday in Dawson, Yukon built on a life-long interest in music which culminated in a book and the cd. Fairbanks musicians perform the music. They are all acknowledged in the liner notes which accompany this web site.
