240 pages, no illustrations
The first comprehensive examination of the campaign to preserve wild Alaska through the creation of a vast system of parks and wildlife refuges. Drawing on archival sources and interviews, Daniel Nelson traces disputes over resources alongside the politics of the Alaska statehood movement. He provides in-depth coverage of the growth of Alaskan environmental organizations, their partnerships with national groups, and their participation in political campaigns into the l970's.
Relevant for students of wilderness politics, scholars focusing on how interest groups intersect within the legislative and executive arenas, and laypersons with a general interest in the process by which nearly one third of Alaska came to be set aside as protected natural areas. - James N. Gladden, University of Alaska, Fairbanks"
