The premise of this book is right on the mark. It's a collection of scenic drives, each containing a small map and a few pages of description. The book is divided in two parts; Yukon and Alaska, so you can go straight to the territory you'll be visiting (or read the whole thing in case you intend to cross the border). So much for the promise...Now, the reality: You get more Wikipedia alike historical tidbits than descriptions of what you will see on such drive. Of course, highlights are cited but again, mixed with bubbling history info. Plus, some drives include useful information like location of gas stations, places to camp, specific points I should stop to see something particularly beautiful, exciting or interesting others not so much. In a short line, what you get is a collection of driving suggestions but you'll have to use the Internet and/or the Milepost to check for more specific information on each of them before actually taking the road.
