Melissa Cook

Melissa L. Cook, an educator, award-winning author, and YouTuber, lived an extraordinary life in remote Alaska from 1995-2016. Her bestselling memoir “The Call of the Last Frontier” details her transformation from a tenderfoot living on the edge of the Bering Sea in a tiny Aleut village to her final days as a sourdough wearing a raincoat in southeast Alaska’s Tongass National Forest over two decades later. In retirement, Melissa reflects on her unique life in the blog Alaska Bush Life. Discovering adventure in her new backyard, Melissa decided to share the scenery and humor when she co-founded the Wyoming Jeepers YouTube show in 2020.
