Alaska! Awaiting popular appreciation of her varied resources and climatic conditions, "America's Last Frontier" is yet a virtually untouched storehouse of natural wealth. This map is dedicated to those men and women who are today moulding this rich northern empire.
As the Territory's main transportation link with the States, The Alaska Line serves Southeastern, Southwestern Alaska and the Alaska Peninsula throughout the entire year - these ports are never closed to navigation. The more northerly Bering Sea region is served during its navigable season, between June and October.
Salmon packing is Alaska's major industry. It is not indicated in color on the map, as it embraces Alaska's entire Southeastern and Southwestern coastline, including the Bristol Bay area.
