In this sweeping epic of the northernmost American frontier, James A. Michener guides us through Alaska’s fierce terrain and history, from the long-forgotten past to the bustling present. As his characters struggle for survival, Michener weaves together the exciting high points of Alaska’s story: its brutal origins; the American acquisition; the gold rush; the tremendous growth and exploitation of the salmon industry; the arduous construction of the Alcan Highway, undertaken to defend the territory during World War II. A spellbinding portrait of a human community fighting to establish its place in the world, Alaska traces a bold and majestic saga of the enduring spirit of a land and its people. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James A. Michener's Hawaii. Praise for Alaska “Few will escape the allure of the land and people [Michener] describes. . . . Alaska takes the reader on a journey through one of the bleakest, richest, most foreboding, and highly inviting territories in our Republic, if not the world. . . . The characters that Michener creates are bigger than life.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review “Always the master of exhaustive historical research, Michener tracks the settling of Alaska [in] vividly detailed scenes and well-developed characters.”—Boston Herald “Michener is still, sentence for sentence, writing’s fastest attention grabber.”—The New York Times

Antes de qualquer coisa, deve-se compreender que Belo Horizonte, assim como os demais núcleos urbanos, se encontra em constante transformação. Fruto, além de outros fatores, das mudanças de nossa sociedade, que contribuem para a constante remodelação do espaço urbano. Em Belo Horizonte as transformações mais notáveis do espaço se deram em distintos períodos ligados entre si, deixando fragmentos não só na paisagem, mas também na memoria dos citadinos, em forma de agradáveis e dolorosas lembranças de uma paisagem que não existe mais. No caso o acervo iconográfico, sob a guarda de diversas instituições e acervos particulares, são reminiscências de um período de importantes transformações no âmbito urbano, politico e social, dentro do qual as fotografias exercem um papel muito mais complexo do que apenas o papel associado à contemplação, tornand
