Sneak Peak-Setting

For a sneak peak into the area of Alaska where my novel is set, I have 2 different videos for you.

The story will start out in a village in Lake Clark National Park which is in South central Alaska.. If you would like to watch a video of that area here is a one that is approx. 4 minutes long. 

Keep in mind that the novel is about a futuristic dystopian society where technology/engines are no longer available, and they are living mostly by the old ways of the Dena’ina Athabascan natives. Also keep an eye on the wild life in this video, some of them will be appearing in the novel. 


This next video is of the Lake Iliamna region of Southwestern Alaska. The name is said to come from a Dena’ina Athabascan word nila vena or ‘islands lake’. One legend says that ‘Iliamna’ is the name of a giant fish that lives in the lake and ‘bites hole in the bidarkas (Kayak) of bad natives’. One of the villages in my book is going to be on the shore of this lake, and be called Iliamna.
