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.

HASH(0xb2b1800c) 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.

HASH(0xb2b18498) 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.

HASH(0xb2b1863c) out of 5 stars Very general Info only. Oct. 30 2014
By Fishtail - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book before my family embarked on a 5 week long Alaskan journey. I also purchased The Milepost. I honestly never cracked open this book again after reading it before we left. I used the Milepost like The Bible. In rural Canada and Alaska everything is described and found by the milepost on the highway and not by signs because they are few and far in between. This was a decent read but I found the information outdated and very generalized.

Found this book most helpful in the preliminary planning of our trip. Good information and advice with potential costs, driving times, road conditions, lodging and restaurant information. A good accompanyment to the "Milepost".
