Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Aniak River is a river in Alaska, USA. Aniak is a Yup'ik word meaning "the place where it comes out," which refers to the mouth of the Aniak River. This river played a role in the Placer Gold Rush of 1900-01, when prospectors from Nome rushed to the Kuskokwim River Delta after hearing of discoveries along the "Yellow River," later believed to be the Aniak River because of the yellow tint from silt carried from headwater streams. Beginning at Aniak Lake, the river generally flows due north. The upper sections flow through the Kilbuck and Kuskokwim Mountains, and the lower portions transition to the Kuskokwim lowlands and tundra. The river stretches 140 river miles, joining the Kuskokwim one mile east of Aniak, Alaska.show more
