Here is an angry novel about Alaska in the 1950s, and its struggle to obtain statehood. The Ice Palace is a nickname attached to a hotel/pension house that might also be applied to the (at the time) territory. So we follow the story of a young woman and her grandfathers as they give us a history lesson, a tour of the territory, and a picture of the scuffle for statehood. Quite poignant when written, it is a good reminder of the idiocy, greed, and conspiracy between our congress and big business (or should I say money) and their lobbyists that it prevalentmore than evertoday.
