About the Author:

Erin Kirkland is a contributing editor to Alaska Magazine, cohost of the Alaska Travelgram Radio Show, and publisher of AKontheGO.com, a website dedicated to family travel and outdoor recreation in Alaska. She lives in Anchorage, Alaska.

Review:

"Kirkland offers advice on traveling in Alaska throughout the year. Cruising is a big industry there, so she devotes an entire chapter to it. Just as crucial is what to pack (in a word, layering). She includes a chapter on wildlife, from bears to mosquitoes. The bulk of the book, though, is devoted to describing what to do and where to stay in Alaska — always written from a family perspective — from Anchorage to Skagway and, yes, even Wasilla, home of Sarah Palin." (Chicago Tribune)

"Written with a down-to-earth voice and filled with handy information, the guidebook Alaska on the Go: Exploring the 49th State with Children makes planning an Alaskan family vacation doable and fun. Author Erin Kirkland paints a beautiful picture of Alaska’s rugged wilderness that will have you longing for a trip to this northern state. Expect a blend of Alaskan history and cultural lessons along with sound family travel advice and nature exploration safety tips. I love Erin’s humorous, tell-it-like-it-is voice mixed with solid facts." (Travel Mamas)
