Alaska author James A. MichenDing and highly inviting territories in our Republic if not the world The characters that Michener creates are bigger than life” Los Angeles Times Book Review   “Always the master of exhaustive historical research Michener tracks the settling of Alaska in vividly detailed scenes and well developed characters” Boston Herald   “Michener is still sentence for sentence writing’s fastest attention grabber” The New York Tim A novel almost as big as the state I learned so much from this book so many things I never realized had happened Guess they didn't teach us anything in history class about Alaska I thoroughly enjoyed the use of family through several generations In this day Michener's use of strong women and getting over cultural groups intermarrying is a huge plus I really liked the South Dakotan that was of Scot English about 10 other nationalities talking about half breeds??? Get a grip Michener boiled it down to it's all about who you are and what you believe And that is all that matters
