About the Author

I am a Lonely Planet author based out of where I am. Born in Washington DC and raised in the rural Maryland tidewater, I've been exploring the world and writing about it since I was 17. It's a blessedly interesting way to live one's life. Also, it's good fun. I just read two good quotes. So with thanks to Italy, ancient and modern: "Tutto il mondo e paese." And "Ambulare pro deus." If we ever meet on the road, let's share a drink and a story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, Informative, Alaska Travel Book Aug. 10 2012
By S. Bunker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I sampled several Alaska travel books to prepare for my trip in Summer 2012. Of the books I looked at this was the most helpful. It has a brief historical summary of each area so you can appreciate what each region has been through before you get there. It was very helpful in finding places in each area that interested me. Whether you wanted to find the nearest place for a scenic photograph, the best place to take the kids, or the nicest restaurant in town this book can help you do it. It also lists website that were very helpful in finding further information on ferry or train schedules and such. I was not disappointed in my trip because I knew what to expect from many of the sites and restaurants from reading this book. I felt prepared for the Last Frontier and you will too if you purchase this book. Parts of this book were so entertaining that I laughed out loud while reading.

I was raised Alaskan and this book taught even me a thing or two about the area I was from. It is a well researched book. I would highly recommend this book to anyone Alaska bound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great guide for a great trip Sept. 1 2012
By Mainer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used this guide in planning a trip to Alaska last month and also while I was there. I appreciated it most in decided where to go and how much time to dedicate to different locations and activities, and also while I was there for restaurant recommendations. It did not steer me wrong. I found it fairly easy to navigate, although when I was actually in Alaska, the arrangement of the book, particularly the Anchorage section, was a little less than helpful - dividing Anchorage up into sections is only useful if you know which section you're in when you're trying to use it - I would have preferred one larger map to several smaller maps. But overall, I thought this book was great. It definitely alerted me to some activities and stops that I probably wouldn't have found on my own. And I think the restaurant recommendations were very good - I chose most of my dinners from the book and didn't have a single bad meal while I was in Alaska (well, at least not that I chose).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Guide Out There... Period! Aug. 28 2012
By Jerry J. Ward III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been to Alaska many times; for both pleasure and business. This is the only guidebook I take with me. Other books focus in on the usual tourista venues and add a little history here and there; not Lonely Planet. The Lonely Planet guides are packed with useful info about the tucked away spots that few folks from Outside venture, as well as trivia and historical tidbits. I highly recommend this and all the Lonely Planet series to my students! Take care, Jerry [...]

3.0 out of 5 stars kindle edition Sept. 6 2012
By Pat W. Sutphin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The information provided in the book was great, if you could find it. The kindle edition was difficult to work with and while traveling in Alaska I finally gave up trying to locate the information I wanted as I traveled within the state. The travel and tourism offices became my friends. Perhaps the problem was with the Kindle Fire, don't know, but the table of contents never displayed making the efficient use of the book impossible.
