Reviews and Lives

David James

Most of us know or work with people who hail from another country. But asking how the people actually made it here demonstrates a keen instinct for story. That is the case with David James. Many know him for his book reviews in the Ester Republic, Fairbanks Daily News-Miner and other periodicals. But for the past several years he’s been profiling many of the people who left other countries, seeking a place where hard work and  safety could produce a rich and satisfying life.  It turns out David James’ own story, in many ways, mirrors those of his subjects. He had no idea he’d be a respected writer when on a whim he accepted an invitation to come to Fairbanks.

Also, Randy Zarnke, who recently received the Leadership award from the National Trappers Association, says when the manuscript by a 19th century miner came to his attention he knew he had to bring it to print.
