Explorer's Guide The Alaska Panhandle covers the basics for lodging, restaurants, shopping, and recreational activities in this untamed paradise. It tells you how to get around in this distinctive 1,000-mile region where there are no roads between towns. Cruise passengers will find a section on port highlights and things to do away from the crowds, as well as tips for observing wildlife, and a rundown on cruise lines that visit the Panhandle each summer. Another chapter focuses on Alaska Natives, especially the Tlingits, and their intriguing totem pole art. Another section takes travelers into the Yukon along the Chilkoot Trail on the paths blazed in the Klondike Gold Rush.

The purpose of this handbook is to provide aviation enthusiasts with a simple checklist on where to find the surviving retired military aircraft that are preserved in the state of Alaska. The majority of the “Alaska Warbird Survivors” can be viewed at Elmendorf AFB; Eielson AFB; Kulis ANG Base; in the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum in Anchorage; in the Alaskaland Pioneer Air Museum in Fairbanks; Healy, Denali Wings; and at Palmer, in the Museum of Alaska Transportation and Industry. Various “gate guardians” are also listed. The museum staffs and volunteer organizations in Alaska have done a particularly good job of preserving the great variety of American combat veteran aircraft, illustrated here. Hopefully, as more aircraft are recovered from their crash sites in the bush and restored, traded or brought back from private owners, that they too will be added to the record. The book lists the aircraft alphabetically by manufacturer, number and type. This list is also appended with a brief summary of the aircraft presently on display within the state and a bit of its history in the US military.

New, revised second edition! Since A Guide to the Notorious Bars of Alaska was first published in 2014, eight of the bars that were described in the first edition have closed their doors forever. The revised second edition includes five additional bars that meet the criteria. Also added to the second edition are regional maps, and more historic photos and advertisements. The Lower 48 have created myths and legends about things Alaskan: Things in Alaska are bigger, colder, wilder, fiercer, more independent, more rugged, more resourceful, to name just a few of the qualities that surround the Alaska myth. However, the one that says Alaskan bars stand head and shoulders above bars anywhere else just might be true. When author Doug Vandegraft moved to Alaska after graduating college in 1983, he found himself in the wild-west-style bar scene in Anchorage. Nearly two decades later, he officially began conducting research on Alaskan bars that he found as unique as everyone believed. A Guide to the Notorious Bars of Alaska details the rich history and atmosphere of remarkable, one-of-a-kind Alaskan bars, many of which have been around since the end of Prohibition in 1933, and have become legendary in their communities and beyond as places to socialize, meet friends, come in from the cold, and sometimes as community centers or even as churches. Despite stricter laws regarding alcohol sale and consumption, Alaska's bars remain notorious in many ways.
