Alaska: The Great Land
Each year the allure of Alaska attracts a million visitors and some 14,000 new residents undeterred by fur, gold, and oil booms gone bust. As geographer Henry Gannett predicted in 1904, Alaska's "grandeur is more valuable than the gold or the fish or the timber, for it will never be exhausted." Explore Alaska's land, wildlife, history, and people in this National Geographic interactive feature.
