    Please correct my USA album

    Is there somebody who wants to correct this, please tell me.
    The USA album is too big to post it here (about 23 pages). I'll send it by
    e-mail if there's someone who is interested in correcting this.

    Thanks very much for your help!!

    Re: Please correct my USA album

    Here a little part. It's about Alaska.

    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']Alaska is the largest state in the United States in land area at 570,380 square miles more than twice as large as [/FONT][FONT='Rockwell','serif']Texas[/FONT][FONT='Rockwell','serif'], the next largest state. Alaska is one of two U.S. states not bordered by another state, [/FONT][FONT='Rockwell','serif']Hawaii[/FONT][FONT='Rockwell','serif'] being the other. Alaska has more [/FONT][FONT='Rockwell','serif']coastline[/FONT][FONT='Rockwell','serif'] than all the other U.S. states combined. The state has 3.5 million lakes.[/FONT][FONT='Rockwell','serif']In Alaska, there are a lot of places you can’t go to by road. So many people have planes and there are 560 small airports. But if you get the right plane you van land on water.[/FONT][FONT='Rockwell','serif']You can do the Iditarod Dog Sled Race. It’s very famous there. The race is 1049 miles long but there’s a race for kids which is only 130 miles long. Everyone can start at the race.[/FONT][FONT='Rockwell','serif']Oil and gas are very important. They made Alaska to one of the richest states in the USA. The oil is carried through the Trans-Alaska pipeline from the oilfields in Prudhoe Bay to the harbor at Valdez. Most of the pipeline was built above the ground because of the heat. So it doesn’t hurt the environment.[/FONT][FONT='Rockwell','serif']In Alaska live not only Inuit. There are very friendly Indians, too. [/FONT][FONT='Rockwell','serif']In the west only 51 miles away is Russia. They were the first Europeans in Alaska. Once an old Russian town was the capital of Alaska.[/FONT][FONT='Rockwell','serif']The Inupiat are Inuit who live in the north(west) of Alaska. They speak Inupiaq. Not all Inuit can speak the language. [/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']The Inuit are allowed to kill about 60 whales every year. It’s very important for Inuit culture. [/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']Everyone has a job to do at whaling time. The men look for big holes in the ice. Holes are the best places to find whales. The women cover the “umiaks”, the boats they use, with seal skins.[/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']They use snowmobiles to pull our tents and umiaks to an ice-hole. Then the men wait, often for days, for a whale. When a whale comes, they use harpoons to kill it and to pull it onto the ice. It takes a day to cut up a whale. They use every part of the animal.[/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']In June they go out on the tundra in order to celebrate Nalukataq, the whaling festival, with family and friends. The whale meat is eaten. They talk, sing, dance and do Inupiat sport. [/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']Denali – National Park Alaska[/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']The National Park is around North America’s highest mountain, Mount McKinley. With its 9420 sq mi Denali National Park is larger than the state of Massachusetts.[/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']You can see there for example: Caribous, Moose, Grizzly bears and Wolves.[/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif'][FONT='Rockwell','serif']Gold Rush:[/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']110 years ago there was a famous Gold Rush in Alaska at Klondike River. And there was one at Yukon River. Over 40.000 people came to find Gold. [/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']George Carmack took 1896 information that at today’s Bonanza Creek Gold was. At August 16 he found gold with Indian relatives at Discovery Creek. That was the course of the Gold Rush. But there were no contact with other countries so it took a long time to the other countries it also knew. But after July 14 1897 people came from all over the world to find Gold. It wasn’t easy to get there. They traveled by ships and most landed on the Skagway or Dyea harbors. Then they had to go over White or Chilkoot Pass to Bennett Lake. At the border between Canada and Alaska waited the police of Canada for the “Digger”. The police led only people pass who has over 1t food and the right equipment. At Bennett Lake they were taken by boats on the Yukon to Dawson city and continued to the goldfields.[/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']Many turned around and went back and some people died.[/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']Finally 40.000 people were there. But the gold was found a lot of time before and so in the best Claims were no gold anymore. Carmack had taken it and was being a rich man who led people for him work. [/FONT]
    [FONT='Rockwell','serif']Today in Alaska is still gold excavated but this work does the machines.[/FONT]
