If you enjoy learning about the way things use to be done.. you may enjoy this book called

Next up in this series of videos is Drift fishing in the 1960s

Scenes include images of the Talkeetna Roadhouse in Talkeetna, Alaska, with Carroll and Verna Close baking bread. John Baker filmed this sequence during the late 1960s and added narration in about 2000 (Color/Sound/16mm film). This sequence contains excerpts from AAF-16367 from the John Baker collection held by the Alaska Film Archives, a unit of the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections & Archives Department in the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library, University of Alaska Fairbanks. For more information please contact the Alaska Film Archives.
