Where are Native Alaskans?

Any additional comments?

The history coverage was exceptional, I appreciated the context and depth.

It might better have been sub-titled, A Federal/National Perspective. Alaskans, save Mardy Murie, Celia Hunter and Ginny Woods were largely left out. Native Alaskans were ignored. How could a writer, who otherwise seems a great chronicler, mention Project Chariot and completely ignore the Native Alaskan voice?

I marked down the otherwise excellent narration because he murdered Alaskans names both people, e.g. Brina Kessel and places, e.g. Nunamiut, which grates on the reader.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Quiet World to be better than the print version?

I thought this book might be tedious to get through: it's not at all. The author weaves a good tale which is inspiring. Let's persist in preserving ANWR!
