Julian Williams, a native of Jacksonville, GA, started noticing the impact of Georgia on Alaska, including the personalities migrating to The Great Land. Finding an unusual grave (the person was only 42 years of age) near the Ocmulgee River Swamp at China Hill (near Jacksonville, GA), Julian's curiosity got the best of him and he signed on for a 31-day tour, including Alaska. His main objective was to learn more about the person buried in that rural Georgia grave -- Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alaska, George F. Boney. Had he lived near the river of Jacksonville,GA? Where did life take him? How did he wind up in Alaska? What happened to him? Williams found much about that: George F. Boney was not just a man ... he was a giant! Williams also found other colorful folks who left indelible personal marks (good and/or bad) and lasting signfiicant contributions (or drawbacks) for Alaska. But the grand experience of Alaska, along with the laughter, was tempered by the vinegar and spice of Julian's reluctant fellow traveler, Russell Collins. He contended that all information, history and progress of Alaska were subject to his interpretation. To this end, he "explained" the way it is! At the same time, Russell worked tirelessly to get away from all the travelers on the tour by trying to catch the next plane back to Georgia.
