I got this book as well as the milepost. The milepost is the only one I have used. This one is ok if you just want some general info on the highway but isn't great as a guidebook while driving.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but needs maps Jan. 3 2010
By Douglas Long - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good overall guide to the Alcan, with almost all the information you need on the vehicle, the roads, history, etc.

The author seems to be an avid fishermen, so this topic is well addressed.

He also devotes a huge chunk of the book to the various routes to Dawson Creek. You don't buy this book for a guide to driving from the myriad locations in the US to Dawson Creek. That's a different topic.

Little or no attention was given to hiking, mountain biking, or winter travel.

The major shortcoming was its lack of maps. A travel guide without good maps is, well, unacceptable.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book you need when traveling the Alcan Hwy. Feb. 16 2012
By kammagalia - Published on

Are you going to take a trip on the Alcan Highway? Then you need to get this book. It covers everything you could ever want to know plus many other suggestions that will keep you safe and allow you to have a great adventure. The author gives a personal touch in guiding you through Canada and up to Alaska. Since he and his family have taken many trips, he is able to give a more personal glimpse of not only the most sceanic and interesting but the more practical angle on this trip. My husband loved this book so much that he read it in one day and plans on reading it again soon. We are going to carry it in the cab of the truck for reference. If you are a fisherman, Ron gives great fishing advise too. This book is really helping us put together our trip.

Love it. I would give it 10 stars if there were a place for them. This was a major addition to our 29 day drive to Alaska and back to Illinois. The guide book was very informative and accurate. It added a lot a enjoyment to the trip. I would recommend this book for anyone intending to driver the Alaska Highway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book Sept. 14 2009
By Tony T - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We are considering a trip (drive) to Alaska with our RV and I wanted to start reading about the journey. After looking at all the book reviews, I ordered this book along with the Traveler's Guide to Alaskan Camping. It had a lot of good information, and I am satisfied it will help us start thinking about our trip preparations.
