The next segment of the Travelogue Series in Greensburg will transport visitors to parts of Alaska “unfettered by any human influence.”

Filmmaker Dale Johnson of Lubbock, Texas, will present his narrated film, “Lure of Alaska,” at 7:30 p.m. on Monday at the Greensburg Salem Senior High School auditorium .

This is the 59th version of the series offered by the Greensburg College Club to fund scholarships given to local high school students.

“I spent the summer before last in Alaska and before that I lived in Anchorage,” Johnson said. “I will take you to the national parks such as Denali and we will also see a lot of wildlife, like grizzly bears fishing for salmon.”

“Everyone has a different idea of what Alaska is,” Johnson said. “This film will take you from coast to coast, seeing things that might surprise you.”

Johnson's film captures life in a remote village and on a farm, and the lure of beautiful fishing lakes and streams, along with the “6 million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road” in Denali National Park.

“We are hoping that his talk will attract a lot of sportsmen,” said Barbara Hollis, chairwoman of the Travelogue Committee.

Audiences for the series include those who want to reminisce about past visits to the country in the spotlight, those who wish to go and those who are planning to go, she said.

Johnson has been traveling the country with his film.

“I have been from Maine to Florida from Texas to California,” Johnson said. “I see mostly people who are a little elderly but who are still interested in travel, still interested in getting out into the world. There is a broad range of interest in Alaska from travelers to sportsmen.”
