4. Ice Window: Letters from a Bering Strait Village 1892-1902
Paperback (392 pages) by Kathleen Lopp-Smith (Brand: University of Alaska Press)
A young, optimistic teacher eager to work with another culture, Ellen Lopp welcomed the challenges that life in an isolated coastal village of northwest Alaska offered. Ellen was both a teacher and a student, helping a generation of Native Inupiat adjust to the white culture being thrust upon them while learning their language and lifeways herself. Ellen shared her observations and experiences in letters to family and friends, leaving us a window that expands our knowledge of a vital period in Alaska history with an intimate view of people's lives and turn-of-the-century events at Cape Prince of Wales. Most important, Ellen's letters clearly show the kind of person who was the best representative of a culture destined to change another culture. Unlike many teachers and missionaries, the Lopps accepted the villagers as their friends rather than people to be subjugated. Ellen's letters make up the core of this book, and are augmented with annotations and copious photographs, making this highly readable and beautifully produced volume a bestseller among both scholars and the general public.

7. The Bering Strait Crossing: A 21st Century Frontier Between East and West
Paperback (256 pages) by James A. Oliver (Brand: Information Architects)
The Bering Strait Crossing is the epic story of the Intercontinental Divide. The ancient waterway - when the fog clears over the Diomede Islands - is among the world's most stunning vistas. This is where the 53-mile wide strait, named for Danish explorer Vitus Bering (1681-1741), separates four continents across the Europe-Asia landmass and the Americas. Isolation, extremes of climate, and geopolitical tensions have interfaced to create the perception of a frozen limbo at the edge of the world. Yet the Bering Strait is the world's geographical crossroads - linking East with West - for nowhere else on the globe is it possible to cross the Pacific overland, between Asia and the Americas. In the modern era, several schemes have been proposed - rail, ferry, tunnel - by which to cross the strait. Since the end of the Cold War, a scheduled air service has been in place. The strait remains undefeated in terms of a terrestrial link between the USA and Russia - so far. The author uncovers a world-shaping revelation: that the Bering Strait has the potential to become a global shipping nexus via the Northwest Passage and the Northern Sea Route between Europe, North America, and Asia. In the early 21st century, the self-induced amnesia of the long Cold War years is yielding to a fresh outlook between East and West across the strait. In a world thirsty for energy resources and trade, the prospect for US-Russian cooperation across the northern Pacific Rim is tantalising in its multiplicity - and vastness - with profound implications for the global economy. James A. Oliver blends geography, exploration and international relations to recount a story that has, incredibly, been lost to the archives - but which belongs to the future as much as to the past. The Bering Strait Crossing is an adventure story that is still unfolding, and which, in the 21st century, stands as a frontier with new challenges on the horizon . . .From East and West, enter a cast of extraordinary protagonists: Pliny, Mercator, Dezhnev, Vitus Bering, Shelikhov, Captain Cook, William Gilpin, Roald Amundsen, and - since the end of the Cold War - George Koumal, whose vision for a mighty project to cross the strait is worthy of Jules Verne's Voyages Extraordinaire. . . "The Bering Strait crossing has a deep, worldwide significance." - Dr Yutaka Mochida
