Publisher's Summary

Trains, planes, and automobiles arrive and forever change the lives of Alaskans throughout Aunt Phil’s Trunk, Volume Three. Hardy souls with hammers and drills, axes and mattocks, mauls and gauges found it took muscle and endurance to lay railroad tracks in Alaska’s untamed wilderness. Other adventurers brought automobiles and airplanes north that transformed the way we mined resources, explored the country and traveled the Great Land. From the birth of Anchorage in 1915, to Balto’s famous serum run to Nome in 1926, to the fatal plane crash of aviator Wiley Post and humorist Will Rogers near Barrow in 1935, this volume is sure to keep listeners engaged to see what happens next!
