I am working on a book about the history of North Star of Herschel Island. We have collected many stories of peoples memories of being aboard or seeing the ship while she was in the Arctic or the Pacific NW. I would love to receive more stories and photographs, no matter how big or small. If you have any, please e-mail them to me at pressgang@hotmail.com

I may end up self-publishing the book but would love to hear of any potential publishing leads.

Finally, I would love to travel to the arctic and interview people who have memories of the ship or the original owners’ families but may not feel comfortable in writing them down or-mailing them. If anyone has leads on travel deals to the Arctic or lodging there, then please let me know. My wish list is (of course) Herschel Island, Sach’s Harbour, Inuvik, Aklavik and Tuktoyaktuk.

Thank you to any and all who can help support this project in any way!
