A collection of accounts of the building of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline during the 1970s (now the Alyeska Pipeline). Lots of good anecdotes but not as deep as an oral history might be.

It serves as a good lesson in a fast, intense investment in an area, showing what happens in terms of crowding, inflation, contract management, theft and long-term changes. It also has some good statistics on the scale of the project.
