Calling all fans of Sky Road North!

As many of you know, earlier this year we had the honor of publishing late Yukon Commissioner Doug Bell’s autobiography ‘Sky Road North’ (available for purchase online or in person at the museum!)

Well, we’ve been lucky enough this week to receive a companion piece to that memoir from Doug’s daughter-in-law Caroline — it’s entitled ‘A Tip o’ the Hat: Doug Bell’s Rambling Compendium’, and it’s a collection of Doug’s best weekly ‘Rambling’ columns from his days as the publisher of Yukon News. From his first column in 1986 to his final sign-off in 2009, Doug has an unmistakable voice, a keen wit and a fascinating perspective on what it is to be a Northerner.

You can read this wonderful collection of columns online in PDF form by clicking here. If you have trouble downloading the document, please contact us at or give us a call at 867-668-4792.

Many thanks to Caroline Bell, Grace Snider and everyone involved with compiling this collection. We are all richer in spirit and knowledge for having read it.
