Old-new Alaska

Knut Peterson’s When Alaska Was Free (Pg. 53); printed in 1977: "…two Alaskas…as different as night and day…In old Alaska, nobody ever thought of locking the doors except right in town, and even there a lot of them didn’t bother to lock their place…Out in the hills it was considered almost an insult to lock your door. Any cabin, house, tent or any sort of camp was your home to use as long as you needed it, and if you took anything you left a note telling what you had been using."
