Alaska Adventure Guide
See details
Alaska Adventure Guide
Melissa DeVaughn


The author has worked to answer all your questions about travel and recreation in a state so remote. This guide attempts to target your interests and save you time, money, and effort so that nothing is wasted during your trip. Because Alaska is so big and your options so varied, the guide is organized so you can zero in on the activity or activities that appeal to you most. Thirteen chapters focus solely on adventure travel, each devoted to a single activity.

The five regional chapters that follow focus primarily on the basics in a given area of the state: getting around, shopping, lodging, dining, and entertainment. Once you’ve chosen the adventure of your dreams, you can go to the appropriate regional chapter to get the scoop on the best places in the vicinity to stay, eat, buy gear, rent a car, and learn about local culture and history. Outdoor travelers also are likely independent travelers. A multitude of companies offer exciting-sounding jaunts to scenic places all over the state, but many of these outfits work only with tour providers, such as cruise-ship operators, to obtain large numbers of clients per trip—thus excluding people who wish to travel on their own.

In this guide, all our listings are available to independent travelers as well as those in tour groups. The objective is not to provide the most information about destinations or attractions, but, rather, the most useful information. The guide is opinionated, and for good reason. Any destination or outfitter listed here has made the cut by proving itself a wonderful place to visit or a reliable company with which to do business. If, for example, you want to learn more about sea kayaking in Alaska, you will not be supplied with every operation in the business—and believe us, there are many of them competing for your dollars. What you will get is a select assortment of those we consider best, and why. After all, isn’t the point of a guidebook to help you make the most informed choices?

Beyond the Horizon
Colin and Julie Angus


    Colin Angus began his quest to circumnavigate the Earth under his own power in Canada in June 2004. His 720 day journey took him through Alaska, across the Bering Sea, through Europe from Moscow to Portugal, across the Atlantic to Costa Rica, and then back to Vancouver. While facing the relentless cold of the Siberian winter, Angus battled an even greater danger—the steadily mounting rift between himself and expedition partner Tim. Ending the fateful pairing mid-Russia, Angus plowed forward now competing with his friend-turned-foe to be the first to finish a human-powered journey around the globe.

    Without skipping a beat, Angus’s fortunes turned golden when his fiancée Julie Wafaei agreed to complete the journey with him. Together they rowed through the fiercest hurricane season of modern history, narrowly escaping death, arriving shaken and stirred, but alive in the Costa Rican port of Limon, where they began the long final push toward home. This is a book about strength, not only physical but of character as well. With a powerful message of energy conservation paired with a thirst for life, Beyond the Horizon is a non-stop feast of wow and wonder that packs a flurry of punches page after page.

First Descents: In Search of Wild Rivers



Dropping into the unknown on a rubber raft, hurled and beaten against rocks and cliff walls through narrow canyon chutes, only to round a blind bend, go vertical on a 10-foot standing wave, and flip over backwards into a seething, deafening cauldron of near-freezing whitewater… Such is the life of the brave souls who dare commit themselves to ride the backs of surging untried rivers.

Captured vividly in the words of the adventurers and original photography from the expeditions, First Descents brings together the world’s most respected river explorers. Including true tales from Richard Bangs, Yvon Chouinard, Payson Kennedy, Jeff Rennicke, David Roberts, Royal Robbins, Tao Berman, John Yost, and other adventurers, this newly revised and expanded version of the classic released in 1989 is more spine tingling than ever. Readers will travel to exotic, rugged, and fearful places such as Upper Canyon Johnson Falls in Canada, the Pandi River in Papua New Guinea, the Ikopa River in Madagascar, the ever-challenging Niagara Gorge in New York, the Colorado River in Arizona, the Baro River in Ethiopia, the Indus in Pakistan, and the Kongakut in Alaska.

First Descents captures the excitement, fear, and elation of more than four decades of river exploration.

Guide to the Natchez Trace Parkway
F. Lynne Bachleda


A unique journey through the heart of the Deep South, The Natchez Trace Parkway traverses 444 miles from Natchez, Mississippi, across the mighty Tennessee River in northwestern Alabama, to its northern terminus just shy of Nashville, Tennessee. For travelers planning a visit or already on the way, Guide to the Natchez Trace Parkway will help them discover all that the historic byway has to offer. From milepost to milepost, discover an ancient trail blazed hundreds of years ago by Native Americans that, in the early nineteenth century, became a trekking road for river boaters, who had sold their goods and vessels and were now headed back to central Tennessee and beyond.

Visitors can drive the entire length, sampling the hundreds of scenic areas, restaurants, inns, exhibits, recreation areas, and other sites along the way. Motorcyclists will want to cruise the entire length as well, but will especially savor the hundreds of miles of meandering road between Natchez and Tupelo. For an even more intimate experience, Guide to the Natchez Trace Parkway shows where to hike on over 60 miles of National Scenic Trail, where to camp, and gives tips on bicycling the parkway's scenic length.

Whether exploring a few miles or a few hundred miles, visitors will enjoy it most with the Guide to the Natchez Trace Parkway.
