Description

Too often the history of a place is reduced to a list of dates and a handful of major events, ignoring the daily stories that help shape its legacy. In "The Long View", Ross Coen stops to explore the smaller yet extremely meaningful moments in Alaska's past. This collection of Coen's columns from the Ester Republic allows readers to see how short snapshots of everyday life can come together to create a picture of the unique experience of living in Alaska. Covering everything from mail-order brides to failed rocket launches and political intrigue, Coen's engaging writing makes the history of Alaska accessible and entertaining.
