Summary
Alaska is a land of extremes: the biggest, coldest, windiest, and wildest. Its climate and land forms are shaped by two oceans, the moving Earth, and frozen polar air. Through it flows the Yukon River, perhaps the last untamed river in North America. Beautiful photography modified with computer images show how populations and natural forces have changed the land. Intimate portraits show the spirit of the people native to Alaska, and those who came to change the land but were dominated by it
