A book designed to satisfy the growing curiosity in the states about Alaska, but not a book for the tourist. Emphasis is laid upon Alaska's leading industries, upon hunting, fishing, rather than upon scenic beauties and historical background. Information on homesteading and occupational opportunities is detailed and extensive, making the book of specific value to veterans and others seeking far frontiers. Written in extremely factual and rather pedantic fashion, it wont capture the interest of the average reader seeking something more glamorous. Of reference value chiefly.
