Alaskan Travels

Author(s): Edward Hoagland

Location(s): Alaska

Genre(s): Travelogue

Era(s): Modern



Hoagland inserts historical facts about the towns and cities he visited, and he provides plenty of appealing natural descriptions of a wondrous landscape. A pleasing combination of personal essays and reflections, a love story and a naturalist’s view of one of the last unspoiled lands. –Kirkus Reviews
