The Alaska 67: A Guide to Alaska's Best History Books by The Alaska Historical Society
Regular price $ 16.50
Editorial board members provide insightful synopses and capsule reviews of all 67 titles, making this book an essential reference for those interested in exploring Alaska's past. In his introduction, historian Terrence Cole points out that this is a "working list, not an honorary hall of fame of books that all might praise and none would read." He goes on to note that selecting best books is "as hazardous as selecting one's 'best' children . . . it is bound to cause trouble." But according to Bob DeArmond, former newspaperman and 95-year resident of Alaska, "The Alaska 67 will service readers of Alaskana well."
