Alaska by James A. Michener

Alaska is a historical novel by James A. Michener. Like other Michener titles, Alaska spans a considerable amount of time, traced through the gradual interlinking of several families. One of my favorite authors, he wrote long books before Stephen King so be prepared.? But well worth the time. This is a first edition hardcover in great condition.

In this sweeping epic of the northernmost American frontier, James A. Michener guides us through Alaska?s fierce terrain and history, from the long-forgotten past to the bustling present. As his characters struggle for survival, Michener weaves together the exciting high points of Alaska?s story: its brutal origins; the American acquisition; the gold rush; the tremendous growth and exploitation of the salmon industry; the arduous construction of the Alcan Highway, undertaken to defend the territory during World War II. A spellbinding portrait of a human community fighting to establish its place in the world, Alaska traces a bold and majestic saga of the enduring spirit of a land and its people.
