Alaska

Alaska

<p>The history of Alaska is filled with stories of new land and new riches -- and ever present are new people with competing views over how the valuable resources should be used: Russians exploiting a fur empire; explorers checking rival advances; prospectors stampeding to the clarion call of "Gold!"; soldiers battling out a decisive chapter in world war; oil wildcatters looking for a different kind of mineral wealth; and always at the core of these disputes is the question of how the land is to be used and by whom.</p><p>While some want Alaska to remain static, others are in the vanguard of change. <em>Alaska: Saga of a Bold Land</em> shows that there are no easy answers on either
