In more than 100 historic photographs, this book captures the remarkable story of Alaska-from territory to statehood. Picture an elder Inupiat woman admiring her drying salmon rack on a windy, sunny afternoon. Picture a pack train carrying 1,200 pounds of gold destined for the First National Bank of Fairbanks. Picture a man in a suit and fedora playing a violin while sitting on a piece of ice in the Chena River. Witness the passage of time in photos that show Alaskan dwellings progress from sod houses to tents to log cabins to detailed Victorian homes. The people in these photos are captivating-they seemed to know they were living in a fascinating place and time. Their pictures (and words) tell the story of a place marked by possibility and struggle; by fortune and wanderlust.
