KIRKUS REVIEW

It is unfortunate that so vital a need as that for a good introduction to our new American frontier should not be met in this book. Most of the material covered here can be used to supplement standard geography texts, to be sure, though again as in The the treatment seems dull and stereotyped, failing to cut below superficial facts. Brief paragraphs the reader with data on peoples, industries, history, cities, customs, contributions made by Alaska. We wager yawns will set in after the first generalizations, the old faithfuls like ""towering snowcapped mountains"", ""marching forward shoulder to shoulder"" and so on, the staggering marshalling of random facts.
