Today’s question for comment: Which part of Alaska is the most inspiring to read about?


  1. When I first started doing field clinics, I would read about the are where I was visiting. I loved reading 50 Years Below Zero by Charlie Brower and then meeting his descendants. I loved reading 50 Miles From Tomorrow and then meeting Willie Hensley. I wish I could have met Mudhole Smith and Benny Benson. Without sounding like I am avoiding the question, I must say the most inspiring part of Alaska about which to read is the part I am visiting next. :) which is probably one reason I so love this week - I just can't wait for any excuse to share the place and stories I love with others!

  2. I am drawn to books about the I side passage

  3. The ENTIRE state, says this proud Texan!!! :)

  4. I like to read about any part of the state, at any time in history.
