2 Atwood, Evangeline. Anchorage: All-American City.
Portland, Oregon: Binfords & Mort, 1957. 
Octavo, turquoise cloth (hardcover), map illus. endpapers, ix + 117 pp. Very Good, with former-owner inscription; in a Good, mylar protected dust jacket illustrated with a large wrap-around black & white photograph of Anchorage in the 50s, with edgewear that includes chipping. From dust jacket: This is the story of how American ingenuity and determination pushed back the wilderness in Alaska to make one of the finest cities in the nation. It is the story of the first 40 years of a community that defied the laws of economics and overcame shackles that made development difficult and seemingly impossible. Anchorage was started as a temporary construction camp. The people who made it refused to let it die when construction was finished. Instead, they found new sources of livelihood, diversified the economy and attracted more residents. Today Anchorage is the hub of transporation in Alaska, headquarters for the military establishment, center of districution. It is a key stop on global air routes over the North Pacific ocean and the North Pole. It ihas more than 70,000 persons and is truly Alaska's Metropolis. The success of the people in building this magnificent city in the face of mighty odds, in overcoming the hurly-burly and often rowdy life that accompanies pioneer efforts, in lifting themselves out of the mud and dust of dirt streets to make a modern, orderly American city with outstanding cultural, educational and spiritual facilites, has won national acclaim...
