Atz Kilcher, best known for his role in the Discovery Channel reality TV series Alaska: The Last Frontier, discusses his life growing up in Alaska’s rugged landscape as revealed in his memoir, Son of a Midnight Land.
Kilcher grew up the eldest son of Yule and Ruth Kilcher, who emigrated from Switzerland to Alaska in the late 1930s, joining some of Homer's earliest pioneer homesteaders. Today, Kilcher appears regularly alongside family members on Discovery Channel's popular show Alaska: The Last Frontier. He also performs music around the country, occasionally alongside his singer-songwriter daughter, Jewel; he also enjoys weaving baskets for art exhibits and spending as much time as possible around a campfire with his grown children and wife, Bonnie.
Copies of Son of a Midnight Land will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of the Learned Owl Book Shop.
