Summary, etc.:
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 these resource 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.
Subject: Alaska > History.
