The homesteader history of Kenai is the focus of this hour. Catherine Cassidy of Kasilof and Carol Knutsen of Kenai are Jay Barrett's guests and discuss their work keeping the homesteader history alive.
On KDLL's special fall membership drive edition of Kenai Fresh Air, host Jay Barrett speaks with writer, editor and publisher Jackie Pels. She is responsible for a couple dozen books, mostly about pioneering Alaskans, including her mother, in "Unga Island Girl," the one-time "commodore of the fleet" of the Alaska Marine Highway, Walter Jackinsky, in "Any Tonnage, Any Ocean," and the definitive history of the Jesse Lee Home in Seward, in "Family After All." She is also a member of the Kenai Territorial High School graduating class of 1953.
