North to the Future by Dermot Cole


Fifty years ago in January 1959, Alaska became the 49th state in the union (Hawaii came later) and a new star was added to the American flag. Alaskans were flush with optimism as they embarked on an exciting experiment in self-government. Alaskans felt they could learn from the mistakes of the older states and create a government that would be a model for the future. Journalist and historian Dermot Cole offers a fresh, absorbing account of the high and low points of a half century of statehood, and the challenges faced by a new generation of leaders who have stepped forward to lead Alaska.
