Crude Dreams by Jack Roderick
Book DescriptionIn February 1968, the rumors became reality: An ARCO drilling rig has struck oil -- lots of oil -- on Alaska's remote North Slope. Jack Roderick's story of oil and politics in Alaska reads like a novel as he tells of the risky, expensive, and mostly frustrating search for oil across the 49th state. Oil companies watch one another jealously. Small independents and the new state struggle to share in the action dominated by huge multi-national oil companies. Gov. Bill Egan, the shy grocer from Valdez, stands up to the industry, seeking the largest possible share of oil revenues for Alaskans.
