Kristal Kurran was a fisherman's daughter, born and raised in the Territory of S.E. Alaska. She moved to Seattle, WA in the 1970's. She created colorful stories to encourage her children to conquer life's challenges and to go on to greater rewards. She has put these wonderful, heart-warming stories in print. How ever this book was inspired by my father, along with some old time fishermen and the wonderful neighbors I had while growing up.
