about

This fifth book in the Aunt Phil's Trunk Alaska history series features dozens of short stories and hundreds of historical photographs that share Alaska's past from 1960 to 1984. This volume the highlights the first 25 years of statehood when the optimistic citizens of the Great Land created a government from scratch in just a few years and dealt with many challenges. Aunt Phil's Trunk Volume Five shares firsthand accounts of survivors who experienced the 1964 Good Friday earthquake and the devastating tsunamis that followed that 9.2 temblor. It also features stories about the discovery of black gold on the North Slope in the late 1960s, and how Alaska's Native people fought for their land and won the largest settlement ever granted Native Americans. That agreement cleared the way for oil companies to build an 800-mile pipeline through some of the most rugged and remote country in the world during the 1970s. Alaskans also learned that evil lurked under the midnight sun in the 1980s, as they ended the first 25 years of statehood with six mass murders.
