I downloaded the free sample, and liked it. So, I bought the eBook. Unfortunately, many of the maps in the book are too small to read. The map's features seem to be even smaller than the resolution of the Nook's screen. Consider the print version instead. It is shameful that the free sample does not contain any of the small maps.

A great resource to planning a trip to Alaska. The book provided great insight into local attractions. We would have never done a glacier hike nor eaten at the many lesser known but delicious eateries. I particularly welcomed all the recommended hikes. All the reviews were very accurate. There is a ton of information covering all parts of Alaska. Just wished we could have visited all the recommended places!
