Editorial Reviews

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)
