Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Koyuk River is a river on the Seward Peninsula of western Alaska. The river originates in the interior of the peninsula, at the Lost Jim Lava Flow of the Bering Land Bridge National Preserve, where it flows southeast towards the mouth of Norton Bay. The native village of Koyuk is located at its mouth. The two major tributaries are the Peace and Salmon Rivers.Its Inuit name was reported by Captain Tebenkov (1852, map 2), IRN, as "Kvyguk." The present spelling comes from A. H. Brooks, USGS, in 1900. The Western Union Telegraph Expedition spelled the name "Koikpak," which means "big river."show more
