"... storytelling at its finest ... explores with vivid intensity the varied lives of its characters and the place called Alaska, that remote state ventured by the fortunate few ... a savoury feast for the senses."

Anne Ku, Le Bon Journal

"... short stories telling of the life in the northernmost state ... unique and original ... a sign that Ravicz is an author to look out for in the future."

Midwest Book Review

"Alaskans is raw, violent, sad and sometimes funny ... Ravicz does a fine job of presenting the human side of living in the wilderness ... stories that will touch the heart of anyone who can appreciate the beauty and serenity of the North Country ... an exciting volume of colorful adventure ... I would wholeheartedly recommend it."

"Girl on a Reindeer" by Gustav Vigeland © 2007 

The Vigeland Museum/Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York/BONO, Oslo


"... character-driven stories about those seeking fate and freedom in the 49th state ... paints vivid pictures of people, their lives and thought processes--and turns them loose on America's final frontier."

Phil Wagner, The Iconoclast

"Part of a true literature of Alaska ... embraces the vast land to include firefighters, fishermen, quirky old-timers, startlingly real Natives, and eager cheechakos, male and female, who bring to this demanding, dream-filled world a memorable energy and a hunger for authenticity. Ravicz's writing whispers, sings, and howls--about colliding passions, unforgiving realities, hard-won success, enduring love, and never-predictable joy. These stories tell lasting truths about our lives."

Jean Anderson,

author of In Extremis and Other Alaskan Stories

"If you've ever dreamed of going to, visiting, living in or simply knowing the true Alaska, this book is for you."
