K.B. Penwarden has completed her new book “Through the Alaskan Darkness”: a rugged true story of perseverance and survival in one of the most extreme environments on earth.

Penwarden writes, “Adak, a link in the Aleutian Chain of Alaska, snuggled right in between the notorious Bering Sea and the extreme northernmost edge of the Pacific Ocean.

"It was a rare beautiful day in October. The cusp of winter for that part of Alaska. Five Chief Petty Officers stationed at Naval Station Adak take advantage of the good weather forecast for the weekend. It wouldn't take more than a few days to boat to the other side of the island, hunt caribou, then return to base. Plenty of time to win the race against that storm expected next week. They'd done it before. No reason they can't do it again.

"Except, this particular storm has no intention of keeping to man's schedule.”

Published by Page Publishing, K.B. Penwarden’s engrossing book is a biographical memoir recounting her father’s struggle against and the aftermath of a severe storm during his tour of duty in the extreme northern reaches of the Pacific Ocean.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Through the Alaskan Darkness” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
