Part of the American Folkways series. From the jacket- "Now that everyone recognizes the immense value of Alaska, not only as a source of natural wealth, but also as a strategic base in the world of today and tomorrow, the story may take a different turn. So far it has been a dramatic enough story, full of black pages, brilliant action, tall stories, gold rushes, myths and nonsense, hell and the tundra."
