My 2017 book about the construction of the Alaska Railroad is now available in an Amazon Kindle edition, giving digital access to this in-depth exploration of an important chapter in Alaska’s history. The story of the railroad’s construction is a wide-ranging look at Alaska’s growth and development, in which the railroad played a major role. From dynamiting the railbed out of the cliffs along Turnagain Arm, to spanning the deep chasm of Hurricane Gulch, and from crossing the endless miles of muskeg swamp to bridging the mighty waters of the Tanana River, the history is told through historic documents, photographs, and publications.
The Kindle edition is formatted as a print replica Kindle book, which maintains the rich formatting and layout of the print edition, while offering many of the advantages of standard Kindle books. Features include a pop-out and linked table of contents, page numbers matching the print edition, the ability to zoom in or pan out on a page, and search, copy, and paste features.
