The Harriman Alaska Expedition Retraced: A Century of Change, 1899-2001
Thomas S. Litwin
Rutgers University Press, 2005 - History - 287 pages
Alaska has become synonymous with the idea of nature, free and unspoiled. While the concept of this open, untamed countryside has a romantic appeal, the reality is different. This book reveals hard facts, challenges simple assumptions, and transforms Alaska from an idea to a real place with its own changing ecology, economies, society, and values.
