My Take on the Book 
I have never been to Alaska, this book was a fun guide for anyone that wants to see Alaska in a pure and fun way. What was great about this guide was that it leads you on a journey into some of the untapped areas of Alaska that you will definitely want to visit. While I am not a motorcyclist, I have to say that even though this is not the case, I wish that I did so I too could experiences the sights and sounds of Alaska as the author did.

Wow, this looks like it could be a great family trip. I was thinking that an RV tour using the book as a guide would be smart. Then I could use the book to find all the great places to stop and enjoy the natural wonder of our great Northern state. Thanks for posting this !
