After reading this book, I am already planning in my head a vacation in Alaska. Who can stay away from this magical place, after reading this book and looking at the grand pictures! The author's love of the Alaska wilderness clearly reflects in her style of writing and along with her well researched stories and accounts, this is truly a wonderful book to own or give away as a special gift to anyone with a sense of adventure. Highly recommended!

This is not your ordinary coffee tabel book. Written with authority, it gives you facts and history of the railroad in Alaska, plus beautiful pictures by the author and the photographer. This will be a gift of choice for many occasions.
