Storyline

This film not only presents a series of scenic views of glaciers, rivers, mountains, lakes, valleys and farm lands of Alaska, but gives likewise a revealing view of some important industries. The commentator tells us that this territory, once known as "Seward's Folly", has developed a significant fish industry with large exports of salmon, halibut and other fish in abundance; a fur industry where mink and other animals annually provide a revenue of consequence; and a gold mining industry, operated by water power, which is one of the largest in the world. Written by FILMS FOR CLASSROOM USE (Teaching Film Custodians, Inc. New York, 1941)
