It might be easier to list the differences between Alaska and Nantucket than what the two places have in common. One is a small Island off the New England Coast the other a large territory comprised of vast wilderness and island chains. And the differences don’t stop with geography. Their history, economies and culture are also quite different. Yet Crocker Snow Jr. sees deeper and profound commonalities between the two places. He put his observations into a book titled Nantaska, the Minnow and the Whale, the Curious Parallel Lives of Nantucket and Alaska.
