Awakenings: Wolf in the Wilderness

on January 3, 2014

See on Scoop.itAwakenings: America & Beyond

Alaska’s nickname is The Last Frontier. The state motto of Alaska is North to the Future, which was adopted in 1967 during the Alaska Purchase Centennial. The motto is meant to represent Alaska as a land of promise.

This Day in History: January 3, 1959 Alaska is in the farthest northwest extremity of the North American continent. It was purchased from Russia on March 30, 1867 for $7.2 million, which equates to approximately 2 cents per acre. Alaska became the 49th state in the USA on January 3, 1959.

Sharla Shults‘s insight:

Awakenings features poetry for Alaska – Wolf in the Wilderness. Alaska is the wolf in the wilderness — loyalty among her own within an affectionate, playful nature.
