It's called "True Secrets of Alaska Revealed!"
Full of questions and answers going through hundreds of years of Alaska history. The questions are carefully researched, photographed and indexed for your reading or browsing pleasure. Below is an example:

Scott Gutelius is one of those Midwestern tourists-turned-Key-West-local. He visited Key West for twelve years before quitting his job working for a large, soulless multinational corporation to live the good life of poverty in paradise. Scott went to college for awhile and ended up with some hoity-toity degrees, which he puts to good use sitting in his apartment surfing the web, writing inane banter predicated on absurdist logic and playing "Pin the nail on the cockroach."
Marshall Stone has enjoyed a checkered career as piano teacher, church organist/choirmaster, Fulbright grantee at the Royal Flemish Conservatory of Antwerp, Belgium and later as a naval officer in Japan during the Korean War. In recent years he has owned and operated a guest house in Key West and is currently retiring in Washington State.
Daniel "I'm Cold" Reynen fell in love with the spectacular beauty of Alaska. Immense mountains, virgin forests and wildlife around every corner. While visiting the Northernmost state he experienced "life at 30 below." He has learned how to deal with ice fog, drive a snowmachine and the value of bunny boots.Review:
