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.
