Tonight: The Real Bonanza
Most people think of Alaska as the land of the Eskimo covered in snow and overrun with polar bears: where the temperature is always below freezing and gold-miners roar into town behind dog sleighs. > '
In fact, there are very few
Eskimos, hardly any gold-miners, and no polar bears at all.
Alaska, the new frontier, is riding high on the crest of an oil boom bigger than the one in Texas, and fortunes are being gambled and won, and staked again.
But what's it like living in a country that has an eight-month-long winter of perpetual darkness and a summer when the hot sun never sets? What kind of people accept the worst living conditions in the world and why?
Rich, exciting, Alaska brings together the investors and the industrial spies, the topless dancers and the roustabouts, the revivalist preachers and what are coyly called the ladies of the night. Man Alive met them all.
