Fortuine tells the story of the disease in the northern state, mostly from the perspective of the health care workers, government officials, and others who battled it, but also of Alaska Natives and others who suffered from it. It is a story of triumph, he says, but also of devastation, and a story that is not ended yet. Dr. Forguine is retired from the US Public Health Service, and writes articles on the history of health and disease in the Arctic.
