I normally wouldn't have looked at a book like this, but decided to check it out after watching an interesting show on the history channel about the building of Alaska's oil pipeline. While the pipeline plays a major part of the book since without it much of Alaska's oil wouldn't have been accessed, the book is more about the history of the state overall. It still had interesting parts and was a worthwhile read.
