Three Books on Coffman Cove

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

Coffman Cove is on the northeast coast of Prince of Wales Island in Southeast Alaska. It lies 73 miles northeast of Ketchikan and 42 miles southeast of Wrangell. The community lies at approximately 56.013890° North Latitude and -132.827780° West Longitude. (Sec. 28, T068S, R082E, Copper River Meridian.) Coffman Cove is located in the Ketchikan Recording District. The area encompasses 10.4 sq. miles of land and 4.5 sq. miles of water. The area is dominated by a cool maritime climate. Summer temperatures range from 46 to 70 °F. Winter temperatures range from 32 to 42 °F.
