The men who made up the Alaskan Branch of the U.S. Geological in its pioneering days, explored and mapped the last major uncharted wilderness in the United States. To create the topographic and geologic maps of the vast regions of Alaska, they left behind the roads and steamboats to travel by dog team, canoe, packtrains and by foot across the tundra and mountains of Alaska. Their adventures all too often were left out of the scientific government reports detailing the information they gathered.
