Reviews

Author Betsy Longenbaugh, a lifelong Alaskan and former newspaper reporter, has applied her passions and tremendous research skills to investigate and share the stories of 10 murders that took place in Juneau or Douglas between 1902 and 1959. "Forgotten Murders from Alaska's Capital" not only presents what can be known about the murders themselves but uncovers a great deal of Alaska's social history at the time. That history, seldom pretty, becomes the real story of this fascinating book.
