A general overview the history of Alaska from the natives to the present. A constant theme throughout the book is whose land? Should it be conserved as untouched wilderness or should development be allowed? Does the nation have an interest in the land or is it owned completely by private citizens? Although it seemed that the author leaned more towards conservationalism, he did present the other side. A good overview that can lead to much deeper study.
