“A wonderful publication outlining the richness of Alaska’s history. A large format magazine with excellent production values, NO ADVERTISING and well researched stories with links to source materials for further reading. Having been an Alaskan since 1965 there are delightful stories that even 50 years of living here had not brought to my attention. Very highly recommended!” ~Amazon review
