ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Kuskokwim River in Alaska. Second in size to the Yukon River, the Kuskokwim is one of the state's greatest rivers, draining 50,000 square miles. The main Kuskokwim River officially begins at the junction of the North and South forks above Medfra. From here the river is wide and meandering, flowing through forests of spruce, birch, and willow and across swampy wetlands. The river has had commercial traffic continuously since the early part of the century. The upper Kuskokwim continues to be heavily traveled by the local population. The largest settlements along the Kuskokwim are McGrath, Sleetmute, Aniak, Chualthbaluk, and Bethel.
