Washington, D.C. United States Senate, 1974.
First Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. 35 pp, 7.25 x 11 inches, stapled binding. Light creasing, spotting, and one tear to first page/front cover, otherwise little wear. Proposal for the creation, boundaries, and administration of a new national park in Alaska's Central Brooks Range, based not only on the area's wild beauty, but also the "unequalled historic sites of man's early Arctic occupancy and significant current Eskimo cultural importance." In keeping with the provisions of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANSCA), the bill provided for the joint management (with the Nunamiut Corporation and the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation) of wilderness areas designated as "native subsistence use areas." The bill was not passed in this form, but it was a precursor to the ultimate establishment of Gates of the Arctic National Park in 1980.
