My name is Helen Hegener, and through my company, Northern Light Media, I’ve published over a dozen nonfiction books about the history of Alaska, the railroads, roadhouses, revenue cutter service, gold rush history, and historic sled dog races. All my books are available on this site, at Amazon, IndyBound, and through your favorite independent bookstore, whether online or down the street.


I have given presentations about my books at the Alaska State Fair, the Palmer Historical Society, Fireside Books in Palmer, Jitters Coffeehouse in Eagle River, the Talkeetna Roadhouse, the University of Alaska, radio, television, and many other venues. I have also written articles for Alaska Magazine, Last Frontier Magazine, Alaska Dispatch, Alaska History MagazineMushing Magazine, The Frontiersman, and many others.
