    Coming into the Country
    by John McPhee
    Residents of the Lower 48 sometimes imagine Alaska as a snow-covered land of igloos, oil pipelines, and polar bears. But Alaska is far more complex geographically, culturally, ecologically, and politically than most Americans know, and few writers are as capable of capturing this complexity as John McPhee. In Coming into the Country, McPhee describes his travels through much of the state with bush pilots, prospectors, and settlers, as well as politicians and businesspeople who have their eyes set on a very different future for the state. -

    Lonely Planet Alaska (Alaska, 7th Ed)
    by Jim Dufresne
    Lonely Planet is at its guidebook best when it's covering isolated regions where those little details of shelter, food, and transportation are of more than passing concern. Just the section on Denali National Park alone makes Jim DuFresne's guide worthwhile, illuminating the complex new rules governing access to that sensational wildlife reserve, plus giving information on dogsled demonstrations, hiking, rafting, backpacking, and so on. The sections on climate, geography, and ecology are very well done, as are the chapters on the Alaskan people and society. The transportation chapters are vital and comprehensive, and the rest of the guide follows suit, covering all of Alaska (no little task) with reliable acumen, information, and savvy. --Stephanie Gold -

    Adventure Guide to the Alaska Highway
    by Lynn Readicker-Henderson
    Book Description: The far north was once a land feared by many, traveled by few. Now it's the kind of place people travel hundreds of miles to visit. This quiet sanctuary of quiet rivers and lakes that come in all shades of blue and green, is also home to some of the most unusual wildlife in the Americas caribou, bison, whales, musk oxen. 

    This is the most detailed guide to traveling the Alaska Highway, a road that is a feat of engineering in itself. The authors detail all the major towns along the way from British Columbia through the Yukon to Alaska and Prudhoe Bay, including Fairbanks, Anchorage, Dawson City, Skagway, and more. You'll also find information on sidetrips along alternate highways: the Top-of-the-World, the Haines, the Stewart-Cassiar, the South Klondike, the Richardson and the Glen. A one-stop resource for Alaska-bound travelers, this book has over 30 maps and color photos.
