In a vast wilderness, there is one town… with only one bar… and just two hours of sunlight. Journalist and NPR contributor Eric Mack moved to Bush Alaska to start a career in radio, but instead found himself searching for life lessons among the heart-breaking stories of death, destruction and survival dispensed at the only bar around for hundreds of miles. With characteristic humor and poignant sincerity, he shares the stories of the regulars at Archie’s Yukon Inn and searches for the sources of suffering in the history of the region and the memories of local elders. But in the end, he finds himself no longer the outside observer and is forced to figure out how lessons learned in the Bush will direct the next chapter of his own life.
