    Paperback ↠ Alaska Epub Ì alaska book, Alaska PDF/EPUBI always feel like I learned something after I have read a Michener novel That was the case with Alaska The isolation and vastness of the of the place is inconceivable to my mind Michener goes a little overboard on some of the details especially the 20000 year old details It takes some dediaction and patience to get through but it's well worth it

    Paperback ↠ Alaska Epub Ì alaska book, Alaska PDF/EPUBJames Michener is one of the reasons that I ADORE historical fiction as a genre This is my fifth 5th reading selection by this author and he continues to hold me spellbound As Michener navigates the origins of the land now known as Alaska and moves us to the 20th century he creates a bold tale of the men and women that have left their marks on what is often considered a brutal frontier If I described Michener's P

    Paperback ↠ Alaska Epub Ì alaska book, Alaska PDF/EPUBThis was different than what I usually read but I still enjoyed it It reads and flows almost like a history textbook but is filled with characters and events that add to the overall narrative The plot starts out in prehistoric Alaska and gradually moves into the 20th century What makes it unique is the narrative has characters with dialogue interaction and continual transitions into the future The books follows prehistoric man t

    Paperback ↠ Alaska Epub Ì alaska book, Alaska PDF/EPUBEpic as a description is thrown around far too often these days So often in fact that the meaning has been diluted down to where it is used only to describe a long storyAlaska by James Michener is not just a long story Rather Alaska is an epic in the original sense a story that is told over the course of epochs involving generations of characters and genealogies The story begins with the forming of the continent of North America and takes the reader through modern times Along the way the people who shaped Alaska are introduced and we follow their stories as they form the greater narrative We meet the Russian and Inuit settlers the captains of the great whalers the politicians and gold miners who wanted to claim Alaska as their own We meet the average people who in extraodinary circumstances become heroes and outlaws We even meet the dogs and salmon who form such an integral part of Alaska's storyMichener writes with a clear simple style He weaves characters toget

    Paperback ↠ Alaska Epub Ì alaska book, Alaska PDF/EPUBThe first five hundred pages of this brick of a book were informative and entertaining enough to get me over the half way hump but it quickly became less of a page turner and of a slog I think sometimes that updating my progress on Goodreads is of a motivator to make it through a book than actually reading it Is that a sign? If your goal is to tell the entire cultural history of a place in a novel telling it through individual narratives might not be a bad way to do it especially if you´re trying for 29 weeks on the national bestseller list but after 1000 pages of the same formula or 1000 pages of anything

    Paperback ↠ Alaska Epub Ì alaska book, Alaska PDF/EPUBA novel almost as big as the state I learned so much from this book so many things I never realized had happened Guess they didn't teach us anything in history class about Alaska I thoroughly enjoyed the use of family through several generations In this day Michener's use of strong women and getting over cultural groups intermarrying is a huge plus I really liked the South Dakotan that was of Scot English about 10 other nationalities talking about half breeds??? Get a grip Michener boiled it down to it's all about who you are and what you believe And that is all that matters
