Crooked Road by David A. Remley

Book Description

"Crooked Road" tells the tale of how the Alaska Highway was built during World War II. David A. Remley chronicles how Americans and Canadians mapped and built the highway under the 1942 authorization of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who ordered its construction for the joint defense of the United States and Canada. "Crooked Road" draws upon archival images and oral histories from those who lived in the previously inaccessible wilderness and those who regularly drive on the highway today, and ultimately offers a fascinating historical account of the expansion of the American landscape.
