Scenic Driving Alaska and the YukonBook - 1996
Author Eric Molvar makes plenty of stops on these drives through the North Country and brings along his knowledge of botany, history, wildlife biology, and anthropology. You'll find brief but enlightening explanations of pingoes, eskers, and suspect terranes. Molvar provides thumbnail tales of colorful, gold-rush era characters like Skookum Jim, Tagish Charlie, and the Mad Trapper of the Yukon. He also includes stories of the native peoples, abadoned mining camps, wildlife, massive glaciers, and expanses of alpine tundra. Molvar makes a rich landscape richer and a fantastic journey even more inviting. Don't simply drive north; know the natural and cultural history of the land, the villages, the lakes and rivers, and the people you travel among.
