Scenic Driving Alaska and the YukonPaperback - 2005
Fully revised and updated, this guide has thirty-six drives that highlight the natural and cultural history of the land. Author Erik Molvar makes plenty of stops on these drives through the North Country and brings along his knowledge of botany, history, wildlife biology, and anthropology. Readers will discover thumbnail tales of colourful, gold-rush era characters like Skookum Jim, Tagish Charlie, and the Mad Trapper of the Yukon. Stories about the native peoples, abandoned mining camps, wildlife, massive glaciers, and expanses of alpine tundra make a rich landscape richer and a fantastic journey even more inviting.
