It is a land with a romantic history, and a land of interesting people, whether these be the sturdy pioneers and their descendants with their tales of early days, the Indians, and the rapid progress they are making on their march toward civilization, or the prospector with pack on back on his tireless quest for gold.It is a land also of many opportunities. In size about one-fifth of the whole United States, in resources almost equal in variety to those of the entire country, Alaska as yet has but comparatively a small population and few industries. New business enterprises in almost countless number await the seeing eye and earnest hand of the shrewd business man and woman.Alaska can be reached by modem, well-appointed steamers over a route that has few equals in the country or abroad for beauty of scenery.

It can be travelled through by rail and other equally well-appointed boats. There is even a three-hundred-mile motor trip that can be taken in the heart of the country through majestic scenery not to be matched elsewhere on a motor highway in the world. There is no discomfort in travelling in Alaska and there is always natural beauty of a high order and, in many places, a touch with the primeval that is novel and fascinating.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
