When locals want the lowdown on what’s going on in their own state…They turn to Amber Richards’ Exploring America series! That’s why travelers are catching on to this invaluable series as well.
More than just travel guides, these state-by-state editions, dial-in to the locales, the events, the goods, the foods, sights, sounds, and characters you MUST experience if you want the right to say, “I’ve been there!”
It is not a typical travel guide, in the sense that the focus is not about where to eat and where to stay, but rather on where to go and what to experience to get an authentic sense of Alaska. In this edition, Amber collaborates with a local Alaskan to pop the cork on America’s true wild frontier.
From well-known attractions and the history behind them, to the obscure less traveled experiences, Ms. Richards delivers the real Alaska to your fingertips! Spoiler alert: pack bear repellent, dancing shoes, waterproof matches, a sturdy steak knife, and your favorite beer mug. See you on the wild side!
"Alaska - Travelogue by State: Experience Both the Ordinary and Obscure" Reviews
Great section with condensed info on ghost towns. Definitely highlighted viewpoints and picnic spots in this book that were not mentioned in other guidebooks.
I have always wanted to visit Alaska and was researching more on it for an upcoming trip at some point. This made me want to visit even more! Personally, I love that it isn't about where to eat and stay, but focused on things to do and must-see places to visit. Appreciated the photos inside too. It will really help me hone in on my trip, of where I want to go.
Loved the concept and chatty style but it's not great as a travel guide because there isn't really any indexing amd the chapters wrre quite small. As a book to give you a flavour and quick overview of Alaska it is very well written but it didn't really provide a lot more than that for me.
