Peter Dunlap-Shohl - How Alaska Won the Cold War
At the time of the Cold War, Alaska was on the atomic front line. We lived with everyday reminders that we were poised at the edge of potential nuclear war. We didn't talk or think much consciously about it, but an undercurrent of dread ran through our lives. We persisted and, somehow, triumphed.

An unromantic comedy with an unlikely couple, death and a carefree young boy, at its center. The two meet in unexpected places at surprising times, always managing to miss the lasting connection we feel is in store for them someday.


Peter Dunlap-Shohl - On the Banks of the Rolling Kenai
A battle to the death between a woman, a man, and a fish that was bigger than them both. On The Banks of the Rolling Kenai, love is the deadliest catch.


Peter Dunlap-Shohl - Oblivion 1964
The experience of the 1964 Alaska Earthquake is one of those landmark events so large their gravity bends the light of memory and affects how one sees the world forever after.


Peter Dunlap-Shohl - Susitna Story
Where the moon casts crazy shadows through the twisted tilting spruce, In the dark and drunken forests roam demons on the loose.
