  The latest Alaska-centric biographic work from Hardscratch Press is out now, and is focused on commercial fishing in Cook Inlet. “The 50-Year Summer,” the story of David Leuthe's decades of returning to Kenai from Wisconsin was published in January. Publisher Jackie Pels gave KDLL a preview of "The 50-Year Summer" when she was in Kenai last fall.


Leuthe died in 2015, and the book was completed by his widow Lynne working with Pels.

Pels will be speaking at 1 p.m. Saturday before the Kenai Historical Society at the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center.
