About the Author

Charles Wohlforth, a lifelong Alaskan, has been writing about his home as a journalist and author for almost 20 years. His two other books for Wiley are Frommer’s Alaska and Frommer’s Family Vacations in the National Parks, the latter of which covers parks across the United States and is based on insights from the Wohlforth family’s own camping experiences. Wohlforth received wide critical acclaim for his book The Whale and the Supercomputer: On the Northern Front of Climate Change, which explores how Iñupiat Eskimos and scientists are learning about — and adapting to — global warming in the Arctic. The paperback edition will be published in April 2005 by North Point Press. Wohlforth lives in Anchorage with his wife, Barbara; sons, Robin and Joseph; and daughters, Julia and Rebecca. He welcomes reader questions through his Web site,, which also contains other writings and travel advice about Alaska and links useful for setting up a trip.

We made our first trip to Alaska this year and used the previous edition of this book. We bought several Alaska travel guides to help plan our trip, and this one was the most helpful overall.

Very easy to use. Has a different slant than other Alaskan travel books.

This book is well-written, concise and very helpful in assisting visitors who would like to accurately navigate their way through this huge, very beautiful, but remote wilderness state called Alaska.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Of all of the books that we read about Alaska before our trip, this was the most helpful. Author is a native and had good tips on the must-sees.
