North to Alaska! assesses the impact of the Alaska Highway on the Northwest and the broader political, economic, and social significance of its construction on Canadian-American relations. It is also a compilation of vivid vignettes, the personal accounts of the people who were associated with the highway, all of whom helped give it its special character. Historian Ken Coates recreates a sense of time and place and proves that the Alaska Highway is much more than a road.
