Book in excellent condition!
Yes, this is an older text (published 2001), but Alaska is as unique as it is beautiful, and this book captures it's essence beautifully! The only other way to comprehend this is to take a trip up there and experience it.
It also devotes considerable coverage to the Native peoples of the state, and their history and culture. For example, if you fly to the beautiful village of Anaktuvuk Pass (population about 300) in the Brooks Range, you can visit the Simon Paneak Memorial Museum, which includes a description of Paleo-Indian people who occupied the Mesa Site in the Brooks Range more than 11,000 years ago.
The author contributes much humor to break up the facts with all kinds of interesting tidbits ----including research on the northern tundra which reports up to 9,000 mosquito bites per minute. If you are even thinking of visiting Alaska, this is a great resource. show contact info
