Synopsis:
Master storyteller James Michener reveals Alaska in all its awesome, sweeping majesty. From the near-forgotten past, to the highly technological present, from self-defense to self-determination, here are the men and women who tried to tame the land, seize its bounty, and lay claim to the elusive spirit that holds native and visitor spellbound. A stirring portrait of a human community living on the edge of the world, ALASKA claims a bold heritage of survival against all odds.
"Michener has done a fine job....Few will escape the allure of the land and people he describes."
LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK REVEIW

Review:
“Mr. Michener is still, sentence for sentence, writing’s fastest attention grabber.”
The New York Times

“Always the master of exhaustive historical research, Michener tracks the settling of Alaska [in] vividly detailed scenes and well-developed characters.”
