4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ronald Calgary on Sept. 28 2008
Format: Paperback
Used this book extensively on 5 week motorhome trip from Calgary, Alberta through Alaska. All relevant highways including approach routes from Canada included. Trip was made more interesting by narrative about landforms,and other scenary along the way as well as bits of history. Well worth the price. Suggest using as complementary to Milepost and Alaskan Camping books.

Very detailed information but dry and hard to read June 29 2008
By DonnaW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's pretty hard to read about every detail of a road, but if you need that information it is here. The book is entirely in black and white which was disappointing. I got much more out of The Milepost which is publised every year and is always up to date.

Great guide! March 26 2010
By R. Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you want a guide that will get you off the beaten path and back to the main road/highway safely, this is the one for you.
Detailed descriptions of things to see along the way. Even the National Park Service was not as up to date as this book as it includes many unmarked trailheads and advice for the locations you visit.
Not enough information April 7 2013
By Fred C. Bueno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
A must have for driving the Al/Kan highway Feb. 8 2013

Very informative and helpful to those who have never driven in the Yukon/Alaska road system. Travelers should be aware of all the seasonal conditions, and available gas/stops as well as the many things to do.
Good book, great series July 6 2010

I am planning a driving trip throughout Alaska and Yukon Territory. This is exactly what I needed to learn where I need to go, and what I can expect. As usual, the Scenic Driving series is excellent.
