Kate Shugak is an Aleut who lives on a 160-acre homestead in a generic national Park in Alaska.
And here is a brand new (as of January 17, 2013) map for you, courtesy of the genius of Dr. Cherie Northon, cartographer extraordinaire of Mapping Solutions.
Kate’s roommate is a half-wolf, half-husky dog named Mutt. Her nearest neighbors are a bull moose and a grizzly sow. Farther off are dog mushers, miners, hunters, trappers, fishermen, bush pilots, pipeline workers, Park rats and Park rangers, other Aleuts, Athabascans, a few Tlingits and the residents of Niniltna, a village perched on the edge of the Kanuyaq River, a 600-mile long, salmon-rich tributary that winds through the Park to Prince William Sound.
