KIRKUS REVIEW

Aimed at the new pioneer this covers all possible questions as to the possibilities in the ""Great Land"" and makes pointed proof of the opportunity there. In chapters devoted to the cost of living, farming, fishing, fur farms, lumber, mining, homesteading, he gives history, facts and figures; in chapters on geography and climate, on white and native inhabitants, on road, air and train travel, government and taxes, schools and who's who, he clearly outlines all aspects of the country. There is also a chapter on the history of the country itself which is a welcome condensation. Some of the chapters are written by specialists, and there are many photographs accompanying the text. As a handbook, and a guide, this, without pedantry, should fill the bill for all those interested in a current report on Seward's Folly.
