Only in Alaska can we come close to understanding what our forefathers must have felt upon their arrival in the New World. McPhee brings to this narrative the qualities that have distinguished him in the field of travel literature - tolerance, brisk, and entertaining prose, and a fascination with things most of us never bother to notice.

    " alaska and alaskans are amazing and insane. for the most part, i loved the intriguing and frightening stories about the great wild north. however, towards the end i got a little tired of the writing style and a few of the narratives were rather dry. "
