The population of Alaska is 735,132, which averages to 1.2 people per square mile. Compare that to the continental US average of 87.4 people per square mile to get an idea of how much breathing room a person has up here.   When purchased in the 1880’s, the population was approximately 33,000 people, primarily Native Americans.  The Gold Rush of 1898 resulted in an influx of an additional 30,000 people.
