Alaska's size and geography is explained. Though Alaska is the largest state in the U.S., it has the third smallest population. Only Vermon and Wyoming have less people. The author shares the story of Benny Benson, the 13-year old who designed the state flag.
Regions of the state are described with factual information including geographical characteristics, native cultures, climate, plants and animals. History of Alaska is told from the perspective of being the first part of North America to be settled.
The book also includes information on the Alaskan government, native cultures, education, famous people, recipes, statistics, state symbols and products.
