Summary

Alaska-America's forty-ninth state-has a long and rich history. Beginning with the Native people who first made their homes there, the inhabitants have benefited from Alaska's bountiful resources. Alaska's gold, fish, and lumber have all contributed to America's economy. Some people wonder, however, if Alaska's greatest natural resource might be her untouched wilderness areas.
