About this product
- DescriptionAuthor R. Harvey Sargent of Sedgwick, ME, led the U. S. Geological Survey in Alaska, for 35 years. He also created the first modern maps of China, trekking across the country's interior during the treacherous post-Boxer Rebellion days in 1903-04. Recreating his story from maps, photographs, and his own copious journal entries, Mapping the Frontier is a great addition to the literature of discovery and adventure.
- Author BiographyRufus Harvey Sargent was born in Sedgewick, Maine, in 1875, but his life and workwith the U.S. Geological Survey took him far from his home town on the coast. He explored and mapped some of the most remote parts of the world, including sections of Alaska and China that no one had ever set foot in. He completed the first aerial survey of Alaska in 1925-26, and in 1947 the Department of the Interior awarded Sargent its Medal for Distinguished Service. He died in 1951, in Washington, D.C.
