 The Summer of '72, Haight Ashbury to Alaska,  published by American Book, will be released July 15, 2010

Three young men and a gritty, hard-edged captain are shoehorned

into a 32-foot fishing boat in the vast, cold waters of Alaska. This

is the setting for the fascinating reminiscences of Ted Soderberg

about his long summer college vacation in 1972. Jaded with

the remnants of psychedelic hippie life in San Francisco, Ted

chooses to spend the summer months not living the easy life onthe beaches of Cancun or St Petersburg, but enduring the harsh,

exhausting conditions onboard a commercial purse seiner in

Southern Alaska.

Hilarious and awe-inspiring by turns, Soderberg narrates the story


The Summer of '72 ,from Haight Ashbury to Alaska, will be released July15, 2010

Uncharted Waters...
During Operation Desert Storm my ship struck an under water seamount. This is a factual treatment with enchanced characterisation, resulting in entertainment for both the novice and seasoned sailor.

Another great place for writers and readers I was a background actor for fifteen years, and was perfectly happy to remain that way. I met some of the most glamorous people in the business, I went to places I otherwise never would have. I had been to multimillion dollar estates with Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Bentleys in the garage. I had been in intimate situations, and exotic parties in Beverly Hills. Occasionally I was treated like an A list star, and on more than one occasion sought after for autographs. Does this sound like something that might interest you? Could you handle being given a shot at something you could only dream of? Do you yearn for being part of the entertainment business; the bright lights, the limos, and your own trailer? Do you crave to rub elbows with stars, and to be treated special as though you actually had talent?
