It's New Year's Eve, which means it's the final day of our holiday specials.
We've sold our last copy of Heather Lehe's delightful novel, Colony Kids, but through December 31st you can still get our films Alaska Far Away and Where the River Matanuska Flows, as well as a very special deal on the Matanuska Colony 75th Anniversary Scrapbook, through today - with free shipping! Just click here to take advantage of these deals before they go away.
Wishing you all a very happy New Year!
Many thanks to Palmer resident Brit Lively for this beautiful photo taken at the Reindeer Farm in Palmer - a perfect image of Palmer in winter.

Merry Christmas from Alaska Far Away!

We're casting our minds back to December 1935, when those 200+ families in the Matanuska Colony settled in for their first Christmas Alaska, far away from the families they had left behind in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
We're grateful to all who have shared their stories in our films. Happy Holidays!
(and yes, if you're still shopping, we've still got holiday specials going on!)

Tonight in Alaska, and Holiday Countdown

A reminder to our Alaska friends: Alaska Far Away returns to KAKM-TV tonight at 7 p.m. We're grateful to Alaska Public Media/KAKM not only for making our film available to Alaska audiences once again, but also for their sponsorship that made it possible for Alaska Far Away to be seen on public television stations across the country in 2013.

*  Was Alaska Far Away broadcast in your area this year - and you missed it?
*  Did you watch it on your local public television station - but want to see it again?
*  Did you enjoy watching it, and now want to share it with someone else who would enjoy it?

We can help! Just click http://www.alaskafarawaythemovie.com/p/shopping.html for DVDs of our films, for delightful books about the Matanuska Colony (including one for kids!), and for some very sweet holiday deals - including FREE SHIPPING through December 21st! Operators are standing by (well, not exactly operators...it's just us, but we ship out your orders right away!)
