What is this? When we do go through every single book in this box? Alright. Man. Cause then we use, man this box is too much.

Alright. Well, we’re going to do this since I got five minutes to discuss one of these books. And then, so I picked a lot of these books out of this box. Why? Because, they’re all bloody interesting. Alright. Besides the little [inaudible 00:05:33]. So, since in this video, I still have to go over a book. Alright. So, we’re going to go over Alaska. The book, the high road to adventure. This is from the seventies. The Northern giant. No, no glacier carved majesty city of the Southeast 44.

Oh, okay. I’m not going to, I’m just trying to find, some key points out of here. So, what that artifact is face the abstract faces pier from horn, hand woven till cat robe, made of mountain goat wool and cedar bark. Chiefs and leaders of high social rank of the get Tlingat Indian Nation, the predominant native group in South Eastern Alaska, wore such robes in ceremonial dances. This blanket personifies hearing rock, a sacred natural formation near a hearing spawning area in CIC top.

So, when we’re discussing the South Eastern Alaska, we’re discussing this part, this portion right here. So, right there in the map. Let me give it a nice little description. A picture of icy wilderness, unspeakably pure, and sublime, wrote naturalist, John Muir of the glacier form, rawness of Southeastern Alaska, but out of the cold darkness in glacier crushing and grinding, he recorded comes its warm, abundantly beauty in life. Today forest of spruce and hemlock and meadows decked with the wild flowers, bordered the glaciers and jutting peaks of the region. Malaspina Glacier, North America’s largest, score’s a path as wide as 50 miles from heights of the Saint Elias mountains.

So, Sitka is right here, and Cawlawa? I don’t know where that is, but my question is… So Juneau Alaska is, there it is.

Juneau Alaska’s in this area is really next to Canada, so majority of Alaska, like the frontiers over here, cause this is just a small little skinny part, you see? The small little skinny part. Majority of Alaska is up here, which is probably, I mean, wow. What a huge, huge range. Hmm.

Well we’re, I’m out of time for this video, but I will be reading and letting you guys know about the… Like, look at that. That’s cool. What is he throwing down there? What is that? Where’s the pictures, man.

Oh, it’s shrimp. From Thomas Bay. 2,500 pounds of shrimp in a 14 hour day. In 1955, the waters of South Eastern Alaska yielded some 55 million pounds of fish and shellfish in 1975. Wow.
