The rich and dramatic story of our forty-ninth state is unfolded through wonderful vintage photographs and the entertaining historical narrative of well-known maritime author Jim Gibbs. More than 250 photographs of Alaskan sailing vessels, ports, lighthouses, and historical figures, along with an intriguing text, guide the reader through the story of the original inhabitants and the ensuing occupations by the Russians and Americans. Visit lighthouses, tap into the oil business, and get caught up in the excitement of the gold rush. Gibbs relates the epic stories of Alaska, unusual shipwrecks, and a history of the cruise industry and modern cargo transport. If you are interested in exploring (or re-visiting) this unique and beautiful place, let this informative and pictorial guide take you on a tour of the "Frozen North" from your own armchair.
Jim Gibbs is a lighthouse keeper and former editor of Seattle's Maritime Digest. He resides now at Cleft of the Rock Lighthouse is Oregon.
