1 WPA. Colby, Merle ALASKA A Guide to the Last American Frontier
New York Macmillan 1939 First Edition Blue Cloth Very Good Price-clipped Dj Octavo Photogravures, Maps 
A most unusual WPA guide: the state tours focus on railroad routes and fares (there being so few paved highways in this large state). It describes the Six Alaskas, popular misconceptions. Also much fun in the Chinook vocabulary list ( Wonder why Iditarodders tell their dog teams to "mush"? The answer is within). The only Guide with a single author credited on the title-page. Inner maps, endpaper maps, and folding map in the rear pocket. Peach color on spine has faded, inked name on half-title page. 004864 
Price: 100.00 USD
