Project Jukebox Survey
Help us redesign the Project Jukebox website by taking a very short survey!
Albert Carroll is from Fort Yukon, Alaska. His father, James Carroll, was a white trapper and, later, a store owner in Fort Yukon, and wrote the book First Ten Years in Alaska. Albert's mother, Fanny, was an Athabascan from the Fort Yukon-Porcupine River area. Albert grew up living a subsistence lifestyle based on hunting, fishing, trapping, and wood cutting. As a child, he accompanied his parents on their trips up the Yukon River from Fort Yukon and up the Kandik River, portaging with them over to the Black River. As an adult, he has spent a lot of time piloting boats, working on river barges on the Yukon River and its tributaries, and trapping. For a period in the 1990s, his trapping partner was Owen Stockbridge of Central, Alaska, and they had a trapping camp in the Johnson Gorge area of the Kandik River.
