Bridges to Statehood: The Alaska-Yugoslav Connection by Judy Ferguson
Regular price $ 28.00
Celebrating Alaska's 50-year statehood anniversary, Bridges to Statehood features the last territorial governor Mike Stepovich. Over the Chilkoot Trail's icy steps, these sons of Viches came-Stepovich, Butrovich, Dapcevich, Begich, Paskvan, and Peratrovich-to guide Alaska from a raw land to statehood, from southeast to the arctic, from gold camps to the forty-ninth star! Names so Alaskan that their Slavic stories went untold, they represented the world's former empires and today's Balkan states and shaped all of Alaska. 404 pages with maps, timeline, and historic photos on every page.
