Big Alaska: Journey Across America's Most Amazing State based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I absolutely loved looking through Big Alaska: Journey Across America's Most Amazing State. As someone who has lived there, my heart stopped as I took in the pictures and words of the wetlands I once stood within. Knowing the vast immensity of just that one region, it was an absolute joy to explore the other pages, seeing parts of Alaska where there are actually trees! Something I missed living on the tundra where even bushes were scarce. The paintings are beautiful and the information just enough to give a brief sense of what Alaska truly encompasses, though it is a very small taste. Such a large state with so many different areas, cultures, and ethnicities, even a full blown encyclopedia could not give but a small taste of what it means to live there. However, all that said and done, Big Alaska is a wonderful book I would use in any level of class to try and explain to my students where I lived and what it was like up there.
