Pat Ms. Kramer

Alaska's Totem Poles by Pat Ms. KramerThrough the mists of Alaska's rain forest, totem poles have stood watch for untold generations.

And, after nearly a century of repression, totem carving among Alaska's Tlingit, Haida, Tsimshian peoples is flourishing again. In this newly revised edition of Alaska's Totem Poles, readers learn about the history and use of totems,...

Alaska's First Bush Pilots, 1923-30: And The Winter In Siberia For Eielson and Borland

Jim Rearden

Alaska's First Bush Pilots, 1923-30: And The Winter In Siberia For Eielson and Borland by Jim ReardenThis book follows the careers of Alaska's pioneering pilots, who, with cranky open-cockpit biplanes, started the great change in Alaska's way of travel. Aviation first arrived at Fairbanks, the trade center of mainland Alaska, from which dog sled trails spider-web to mines, villages, and trap-lines. During winters, goods and people traveled mostly by dog sled. During the summer of 1923 Ben Eielson was the first to fly commercially from Fairbanks, ferrying passengers and light freight with an open cockpit Jenny (JN4) biplane. It was the beginning of the leap from ground travel to the air.
