By geographical area, Alaska is the largest state in the United States. The region seamlessly combines modern conveniences with its breathtaking natural scenery making it the perfect embodiment of the phrase “the best of both worlds”. People who do not have the luxury of time or the budget to travel to Alaska can still appreciate its unspoiled beauty by hearing about it from someone who has lived there. Sherry Preston gives readers an opportunity to experience Alaskan life with her new book, Visions Revisited.
Visions Revisited narrates the author’s colorful experiences and quagmires while growing up and living in Alaska. The book is broken down into 21 stories that will give the reader a glimpse of what Alaska is like and what it is like to live there. The author shares a firsthand account of her childhood adventures, her exciting encounters with woodland creatures, her experiences in trapping, fishing and hunting and many other fond recollections.
Preston masterfully uses words and her love for her homeland to bring to life the sceneries, memories and emotions in every page of Visions Revisited. This book is a feast for the senses and a treat for people who want to taste Alaskan life.

About the Author
Sherry Preston came to Alaska in 1951 on board one of the last steamships that traveled from Seattle to the ports along the coast. She spent 12 years living near a native village where she formed a lifelong bond with the locals. During that period she learned to hunt, fish, and gather wild vegetables and medicine. It was also then that she developed a deep love for the Alaskan wildlife. Her first pet, a baby seal, strengthened her love for nature and the wild. It was several years later that she decided to preserve the memories and adventures she had through writing.
