Alaska

(1988)
A novel by

 
 
Following the tradition that he has made his own in blockbuster bestsellers as Hawaii, Centennial, Chesapeake and Texas James A. Michener now gives us Alaska: the story of America's last great frontier land. We hear about the first humans to settle in this land of vast beauty and danger...about the explorers and whalers who "discovered" Alaska in the 18th century...about the explosive gold rush of the 1890s. And as we follow the fortunes of two families drawn to the territory seeking gold, the tumultuous events of the 20th century unfold.

Past and present, history and fiction, come together in this extraordinary epic story of sacrifice and courage, betrayal and devotion, challenge and exhilaration.
