"An unmitigated triumph. . . . A book that will effectively tell Alaska's story for some time to come."--Alaska History "Alaska: A History is not only an excellent classroom text but also an engaging history for the general reader and a valuable reference for scholars. Both readable and well researched, it represents a fine contribution to the literature of northern studies."--Gordon Harrison, author of Alaska's Constitution; A Citizen's Guide "Naske and Slotnick augment the facts and figures of Alaska's history with relevant and insightful stories. This is a must-read for people who want to understand Alaska today and the course the state is taking toward its next chapter."--Fran Ulmer, Chair, Arctic Research Commission, and former Chancellor, University of Alaska Anchorage "Buckle your seat belt as distinguished historians Claus-M. Naske and Herman E. Slotnick take you on an Alaskan odyssey at rocket speed. Naske and Slotnick recount the journey with the accuracy of renowned historians, the intimate insights of anthropologists, and the warmth and wisdom of legendary storytellers. You will meet the courageous people who loved and settled this land, the patriots, the idealists, and the entrepreneurs, as well as the personalities, politics, power, and money that make it all happen."--Tony Knowles, 7th Governor of Alaska (1994-2002)
