Today’s question for comment: Which Alaska book do you recommend most often to others?  


  1. ALIAS SOAPY SMITH: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF A SCOUNDREL by Jeff Smith, Klondike Research (Juneau).

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Fifty Years Below Zero by Charles Brower and Tacos On the Tundra are recommended about equally. I really like Barrow and these books provide some interesting perspectives on the history of the area.

    Also, the Browers are still a very prominent part of the area and Fran, the subject of the latter, is a fascinating woman. Pepe's South of the Border is a great place to meet the locals and visitors alike.

  4. Peter Jenkins' "Looking for Alaska" and Sam Keith's "One Man's Wilderness, An Alaskan Odyssey."
