#49 Alaska – Awful Library Books

-

Alaska
Pioneer State
Spring
1966

This little gem was still circulating from a small public library as of this writing. I’m sure kids today will find this book very useful in our 49th country study. The purpose of this book is to give the reader a glimpse of “real” Alaska. There are narratives about works, craft, culture and then an entire chapter on The Alaska earthquake of 1964.

The phrase in the second image below describes the woman photographed as having “beautiful and beautiful Eskimo qualities.” Not that I’m an expert at using the word “detail,” but is there no more personality trait? I also want to know what particular “trait” is an Eskimo. Of course it’s weed only based on its age. I think there have been some significant events over the 50 plus years since this publication. Plus, uniting Alaska natives into one group is pretty awful.

Bonus note! When I looked at the list of books on the back cover, I found a reference Canada, the young giant of the north. Our site was only a few months old and has since been one of my personal favorites. Please do not miss the face photos and comments.
