You can not view the scenery and the town and imagine the life, passions and struggles of Sitka. This novel is your window into Sitka. If you remember Sitka Song while you are seeing the sights, you will experience Sitka with depth and with authenticity.Some of you will recognize this as an extensive rewrite of Some Go Out Singing, a novella-length piece published a few years ago in An Alaskan Trilogy. Re-written, it expanded from about 150 to 340 pages. This story of Dee Beans, her romantic and not very romantic entanglements, and her personal progress from village girl to a an artist among artists, depicts Sitka and Alaska in terms ranging from the endearing to the shocking. I have tried to show this town that I love in some of its full range of truths, from splendid to shadowy.
