From Valdez to Prudhoe Bay Along the Trans-Alaska Pipeline PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

From Valdez to Prudhoe Bay Along the Trans-Alaska Pipeline free pdf In Walking My Dog, Jane, readers travel 800 miles across Alaska along the trans-Alaska pipeline, beginning in the south at Valdez and ending at Prudhoe Bay on the Arctic Ocean. Rozell describes the extraordinary wildlife and spectacular scenery of Alaska, but perhaps the greatest wonders in this story are the people who live near the pipeline: homesteaders who in the 1960s nearly starved on a diet of grouse and hares while taming their piece of Alaska- a husband and wife recovering from alcohol and drug addictions by running a hamburger stand on the Yukon River- gold miners who stubbornly pick at a hillside above the Arctic Circle with tools a century old- a pipeline worker who commutes 3,000 miles every two weeks to be with his son in San Diego. As Rozell discovers on his 120-day journey, the frontier still exists in Alaska, but it's not the same frontier that stampeders encountered 100 years ago, or the one to which pipeline workers rushed 20 years ago. Instead, it is a spirit found in these people who live there, now, at the end of the century.
