Master of Alaska … Blog Tour Timed with SesquiCentennial of Alaska Purchase

June 8, 2017

Critics rave about Historical Novel by Author Roger Seiler based on historical documents

"In this gripping tale of historical fiction, a man faces a brutal landscape and forms alliances with the native tribes... An informative, exciting read that stays true to its real-life inspiration."

- Kirkus Reviews

 

 

Nationally known bloggers, authors and reviewers join author Roger Seiler on the rip roaring adventure and love story.  Told as a historical novel, the Tsar’s first Governor of Alaska, Aleksandr Baranov, makes up his mind: he will not be defeated by the Alaskan wilderness. Kirkus gives the book a four-star review.

This is the true saga of Alaska’s first and greatest governor, sent to be chief manager for 5 years, but stuck there for 28.  He built a northwest Russian empire that stretched to California and Hawaii.  And were it not for Baranov, today Alaska would be Canadian instead of America’s 49th state.

 

About Roger Seiler, Author & Filmmaker

Award-winning filmmaker and author Roger Seiler grew up in Alaska from age three.  His love of adventure comes from both his parents. His father Edwin was a civil engineer eventually becoming an Alaskan bush pilot. His mother Josefina was born in Puerto Rico and was a writer and Alaskan sport-fishing lodge manager with the hobby of Flamenco dancing.  In his late teens, Roger was a king salmon sport fishing guide on Alaska’s Naknek River, and a commercial salmon fisherman in Bristol Bay.

 

He attended Deep Springs College and graduated With Honors from UCLA with a BA in Theater Arts - Film. His first film work was for UCLA’s Automotive Collision Research project, including a film for TV, “Safety on the Road,” which he wrote, produced and directed. While attending UCLA, Roger also worked with actor Karl Malden and famed director Francis Ford Coppola.

 

Roger currently lives in South Nyack, NY with his wife Sally. Roger is a devoted reader and supporter of libraries. In 1977 he was elected to the Board of Trustees of the Nyack Library (Carnegie funded in 1879) and has continued to serve for 40 years, 16 as Board President. Master of Alaska, a Historical Novel, is his second book and whose publisher North Face Publishing is subsidiary of Motivational Press Publishing.
