This guide reviews sites not to miss, routes to take, approx. time to allow for certain areas, accomodations in the park as well as locations to look outside the park boundaries. Excellent information, easy to read, brief and to the point.

Again, this book was mailed to us very fast and is a great help in planning our trips to western national parks.

This is a typically well designed and beautifully illustrated book from the National Geographic Society. It is great to flip through and grabs your attention. Note though, this is not really a guide to just the National Parks of Alaska. It is more a guide to all the wild areas and tourist sites of Alaska as they relate to the eight National Parks in the state.

For example, of the 42 pages dedicated to Denali National Park, 12 were about the park itself (of which 3 were full page illustrations) 30 pages of the chapter were dedicated to "Exursions from the National Park." This included everything from briefly describing Fairbanks and Talkeetna to a description of the Yukon-Charley Preserve on the Canandian border.

It is a great book, and well worth it for someone looking for a reference to put together an multi-day itinerary based around one of the parks, but if you are looking for more in-depth information about a certain park, you may want to pick up a different reference. On the other hand, if you love nature, Alaska and beautiful photos, this might be a book for you.
This Guide is full of helpful information, including what to see, what to skip if you are short on time, and how long it may take. This really helps when trying to plan a trip. It also includes other things to see in the area, plus maps and directions. It gives where to find the best sunrise/sunsets, places to stay, and contact information or web sites for additional help. I am very pleased with this book.
