Local publishes book on history of AK canneries

Posted: Tuesday, June 25, 2019 9:00 am

Kodiakan Anjuli Grantham has published her first book, “Tin Can Country: Historic Canneries of Southeast Alaska,” which documents nearly 150 years of salmon processing in Alaska. 

The book, published in May and on sale at the Kodiak History Museum, explores the some-135 canneries that were set up in Alaska from the late 1800s to present day. Grantham compiled the book, which features the work of prominent Alaska fisheries historians Patricia Roppel, Bob King and Jim Mackovjak, as well as dozens of full-color illustrations maps, and photographs. According to Grantham, the book examines canneries as sites of Alaska history.
