Extracts from Published Reviews
"This incredible book should be required in all hotel rooms. Look through the table of contents and see what I mean."         --Fairbanks Daily News-Miner
.“…short, informative science-based articles for Alaskan newspapers that make up this—yes, unique—book….You may never get to Alaska, but you can enjoy Alaska and these articles, high in a Honolulu condominium or relaxing in front of a crackling fireplace in an Aspen ski lodge.”SCAN-A-BOOK, Bountiful, Utah, June 1998.
“Though written primarily for Alaskans, the book explains, in layman’s language, a great many odd and interesting things….All these questions [several asked] are clearly and entertainingly answered.”Ruralite (Forest Grove, Oregon), November 1982
