Editorial Reviews

From the Emmy Award® winning Oscar® nominated producers of the four-part PBS series GREAT PROJECTS: THE BUILDNG OF AMERICA, now comes BUILDING ALASKA, a century-long journey with the dedicated and visionary men and women who built Alaska s great engineering projects in the coldest, most remote and forbidding part of the United States. This feature-length documentary tells the stories of the great railroads and highways of the late 19th and early 20th century and how they opened the region up to gold and copper mining and made Alaska habitable; of the invasion of Alaska by the Japanese in World War II; and of the biggest earthquake ever in North America all of which helped shape America s 49th state.

Format: DVD
"Building Alaska" (87 min., widescreen, closed captioned) is an extraordinary DVD documentary about the grand engineering projects that shaped the state of Alaska. From the great railroads and highways constructed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, to the invasion of Alaska by the Japanese during World War II, to the repercussions of the biggest earthquake ever to hit North America, "Building Alaska" reveals how monumental events of history transformed the state forever. Educational as well as entertaining, Building Alaska is a worthy addition to public and school library DVD shelves.

Amazing what men (and women) have accomplished in the last 100 years in Alaska and how they did this. It is just wonderful how and why they did what they had to do to survive and help grow Alaska. Excellent history to be learned from this DVD.
