Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Haycox (history, U. of Alaska, Anchorage) presents historical commentary on human culture in Alaska and how it has affected the natural environment there. He contends that most non-Native Alaskans (now 85% of the population) went there for the money, not because they loved the wilderness. The focus is on tensions between Native and non- Native people and between settlers and environmental protection. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
