Modestly Alaska, by J. Stephen Lay and Sue Mattson
Alaska is the largest state in the Union. It’s a big state with a lot to brag about, but with typical Alaskan modesty. If you’ve visited or lived in the 49th State for any length of time, you know Alaska is also a state of mind.
Authors J. Stephen Lay and Sue Mattson share some northern insights and experiences in Modestly Alaska (96 pages). With a series of maps and statistical comparisons, they illustrate the state’s differences and similarities to the “Baby States”: (all of those states smaller than Alaska) with great humility.
Whether you’re looking at the Lower 49 or the rest of the world, you’ll understand the authors’ contention that the original inhabitants of state had it right when they called their home Alyeska, “The Great Land.”
