Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
a 100% indispensible handbook when visiting Alaska., March 28, 1998
Reviewer: A reader
This is probaly the best hiking book of any such types. truly informative. The pages seem to be made of a light density papyprus product...making it ideal for backpacking. The Author has truly captured the essense of hiking out in the Alaska Booneys.

An outstanding guide to the trails. Extremely accurate., August 21, 1998
Reviewer: A reader
We just used this book as a primary source on a recent trip to Southern Alaska. The book's description of hikes was extremely accurate and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the very accurate directions to trailheads and the elevation profiles, which gave a good sense of the hikes' difficulty. The book's focus on issues such as the clarity of trail markings and the variation in the hike experience during different times of the year gave the book extra value.
