Cabin Stories: The Best of Dark Winter Nights: True Stories from Alaska is a collection of favorite stories selected by the executive producers of the hit live event, radio show, and podcast Dark Winter Nights. These hilarious, heartwarming, and riveting stories depict true adventures, impossible situations, and the stranger side of life in Alaska—falling through ice, surviving a plane crash, living through a shipwreck in a hurricane, discovering a bear trapped in a woman’s front entryway, finding a pet goose frozen to a porch in a pile of its own poop, and more—as told by the everyday Alaskans who experienced them.
From the humorous to the heart-wrenching, these are the stories told up north on dark winter nights. Anyone curious about what living in Alaska is really like will appreciate this wild and fun anthology.
