Going to Extremes By Joe McGinnis

This is the fourth edition of a work that always has been controversial in Alaska. Yet, it is an important and highly readable classic work that captures a portrait frozen in time of a raw state in turmoil during the oil bloom. McGinnis went north to find out if there was anything left of the "Last frontier." He found "Mind-bending contradictions" as a previous publisher put it--greed, waste, addictions, and racism, among other things, that contrasted with an awesome untamed natural beauty and an honest, open, and independent spirit of people.
