Finding Place in Alaska
Alaska is a place of Indigenous ingenuity and adaptation; a place where environmental extremes challenge the ways of living. In its more recent history, Alaska has been a land known best for what it provides. This persona of the frontier West has not been easily shed, but now, Alaska is pivotal as it represents America’s North. From romantic landscapes and the sense of “place,” to the art and spirituality of Alaska’s Native peoples and vastness of scale, this book examines connections throughout the Circumpolar North. No longer as remote as once thought, Alaska serves as a narrative for our future.
