Gerry Burch, the subject of this earlier oral history interview, writes to say that 95-year-old Ken Halberg has just self-published an autobiography. His book gives readers a peek back into the past describing everything from the frontier days of gold rushes, Great Depression hardships to the dangerous early logging industry days.

The book is $24 plus postage, and to acquire your own copy you can write to Ken at email@example.com.
