A century's worth of legends and history surround the Alaska Governor's House, one of the oldest governor's homes in the United States. Its past is a collage of glamorous balls, wartime austerity, backyard baseball, delicate antiques, leaky pipes, boisterous children, visiting dignitaries and even a bigamist governor. Author Carol M. Sturgulewski interviewed governors, first ladies and friends from every administration since 1958. The text is supplemented by more than 70 historic photos and documents dating back to the 1890s. White House of the North: Stories from the Alaska Governor's Mansion is an intimate and detailed view of Alaska's best-known home.
