Reaching for a Star
Reaching for a Star How a Bold Strategy Won Statehood for Alaska

Author - Gerald E. Bowkett

In 1955, with the drive for statehood stalled, a group of men and women from all over Alaska, delegates with strong convictions, given to strong, often colorful expression, created a state constitution that is now considered a model. Proving that Alaska was politically mature, it pushed a reluctant U.S. Congress to grant statehood to Alaska.
