Project Jukebox Survey
Help us redesign the Project Jukebox website by taking a very short survey!
Gordon Bertoson was born in Washington and came to Alaska when he was two or three years old. He arrived in Fairbanks in the early 1930s, and then moved to Circle shortly afterward. By 1960, he occupied a cabin at Forty Mile (mouth of Eureka Creek) along the Yukon River, where he lived a land-based subsistence lifestyle. He fished, hunted, and trapped in the Kandik River country, and traveled up the Nation River in the summer.
