BRIDGE TO RUSSIA by Murray Morgan


Email this review


Those Amazing Aleutians -- a history and a survey. The story of the Chain itself the occupation of natives, Russians, Americans, and the lure of exploration -- seals, sea otters, routes of trade and empire; the importance of the islands,- in their early weakness and vulnerability, in the recent war; and their place in intercommunication and global travel in the future. With all the background of history and fact there is a great deal as to the possibilities of development in the tourist trade, in the ways of making a living, in the chances of self-support. A worthy companion to Sundborg's Opportunity in Alaska (Macmillan-1945-P. 359) in a book that will have more of a market on the Pacific Coast than the Atlantic.
