Alaska’s license plate slogan ‘The Last Frontier’ says it all. This is a state that, until the 1970s, had far more male residents than female. ‘The odds are good,’ the women used to say, ‘but the goods are odd.’ Bradt’s Alaska guides visitors beyond the cruise ship ports and into the real Alaska. Written by a local, the book includes a comprehensive guide to Alaska’s flora and fauna, and draws on the author’s many years of experience exploring and guiding tourists on kayaking and hiking trips through this vast wilderness little touched by the hand of man.
