Summary
From the Emmy Award® winning and Oscar® nominated producers of the four-part PBS series Great Projects: The Building of America, now comes Building Alaska, a century-long journey with the dedicated and visionary men and women who built Alaska's great engineering projects in the coldest, most remote and forbidding part of the United States. This feature-length documentary tells the stories of the great railroads and highways of the late 19th and early 20th century and how they opened the region up to gold and copper mining and made Alaska habitable; of the invasion of Alaska by the Japanese in World War Two; and of the biggest earthquake ever in North America--all of which helped shape America's 49th state
