Project Jukebox Survey
Help us redesign the Project Jukebox website by taking a very short survey!
Arlene Bell and her husband, Ray, came to Alaska in 1968 by driving a school bus converted into a motor home from Grand Rapids, Michigan. As early pioneers in Alaska, the Bells have lived a land-based, subsistence lifestyle along the Yukon River. First, in a log house they built in Central, Alaska and then in a cabin at Woodchopper, which included activity at Coal Creek and at Forty mile (forty miles above Circle). Their son, Richard Smith, also has had a camp at Forty mile.
