About this title

Synopsis:

The first Sierra Club Adventure Travel Guide has now been completely revised and updated. Here is the ultimate travel guide to Alaska, The Great Land, from the frozen tundra of the North to the lush rainforests of the Southeast, from towering mountains to spectacular glaciers. 34 photos; 15 drawings; 9 maps.

Review:

This adventure guide to the biggest state opens with a compelling statistic: to see the entirety of Alaska, you would need to visit approximately 1 million acres per day for an entire year. To explore a state so vast requires an equally comprehensive resource. Peggy Wayburn's Adventuring in Alaska delivers, providing--by region--loads of general nature and recreational- oriented information as well as quirky Alaska-specific details. Read about bush pilots and the "Bear Essentials," or consider permafrost, a chilly reminder that 80 percent of the state is covered with frozen soil. The state's rich cultural and historical past is discussed throughout the book. For each region a map is included, as well as detailed listings of transportation, lodging, wilderness activities, and parks (phone numbers and addresses are often included). --Rob McDonald
