North to Alaska

Posted by Hello
My Mom and Dad had a dream which did not get fulfilled. They wanted to go North to Alaska, singing the old Johnny Horton tune and exploring the wilderness. Mom was born on a homestead in Montana, and Dad was fascinated enough with that idea to take our family of seven on several summer trips by car from Chicago to Montana, Wyoming and the Dakotas.

The University of Alaska and the Alaska State Library have put close to 3,000 objects on this site. It seems to be a great capsule of Alaskan history. You can browse the thumbnails, and even create your own collection of favorite documents. Worth a visit.
