Sears Roebuck

Alaska native Simeon Oliver, author of Son of the Smokey Sea (printed in 1941) spent his early life on Kodiak and tells of meditating and visualizing from a ridge top: "Seattle…was the western headquarters of Sears-Roebuck, whose catalogue of treasures was our most exciting reading. How I longed to see that great store where you could get anything pictured in the big book: flash lights, clothes, bicycles, candy; even horse and buggies. And pianos!" He went on to become a world famous pianist.
