Alaska, the last frontier, is a land of breathtaking natural scenery and rich cultural heritage. From Denali and Glacier Bay National Parks to the outpost of Ketchikan to arctic Barrow to the spectacular Dalton Highway, expert travel writer and Alaska authority Bob Devine is a deft guide to all the best spots, and lesser-known ones as well. The book's seven chapters cover the Southeast's Inside Passage, Anchorage, Kenai Peninsula, the Southwest, Prince William Sound and Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, Denali National Park and environs, and the Bush. Special features include in-depth spreads on native arts, bear watching, the birders of Attu Island, sled dog touring, sea kayaking instruction, gold panning, and national park field seminars, as well as specially mapped driving and walking tours, among them a spectacular drive around Kodiak Island. As in all National Geographic Travelers, vivid photographs capture Alaska's beauty, and detailed maps ensure you won't get lost.
