                        This book makes me want to travel to Alaska. I thought the combination of facts and storytelling combined well with the great pictures. It paints the scene while still leaving much to go see and explore. I may never get to Alaska, but this may be the next best thing.

                            This is an enjoyable book that makes me want to go to Alaska. The writing is a good blend of facts and entertaining stories. The photography is terrific as I would expect from National Geographic, which adds to the wonderful storytelling. If I cannot visit Alaska, this book might be the next best thing.

                                  Photography in this "Visual tour of America's Great Land" is often blurry and over or under exposed. Colors and contrast are often off. No photo credits are listed in the book, where did the photos come from? Caption for ice bar at Fairbanks ice museum is wrong. That photo was taken at the ice hotel at Chena Hot Springs near Fairbanks. This book is just not up to NG standards and is being returned.
