Three Books on Andreafsky

This week our “Three Books on …” series takes us to Andreafsky. Here is a description of Andreafsky’s location and climate from the Alaska Communities Database:

Andreafsky is adjacent to and within the City boundaries of St. Mary’s. It is on the north bank of the Andreafsky River, 3.5 miles northeast of Pitka’s Point in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. The community lies at approximately 62.045305° North Latitude and -163.218629° West Longitude. (Sec. 33, T023N, R076W, Seward Meridian.) Andreafsky is located in the Bethel Recording District. Its climate is both maritime and continental. Temperatures can range from -44 to 83 degrees Fahrenheit. Precipitation averages 16 inches and snowfall averages 60 inches. The Andreafsky River is ice-free from May to October.
