From Library Journal
This is a breezy narrative of a typical RV (recreational vehicle) tour of Alaska and the Yukon by a retired California couple. It is full of CB chatter, jokes, the names of people encountered and even of some of the drinks and dishes consumed. Interspersed is practical information for those considering similar undertakings. Among the numerous travel accounts by visitors to Alaska this one is entertaining, but it is by no means authoritative or unique. Its appeal will be limited to RVers. For larger public libraries serving a mobile retired clientele, and as a supplement to the standard guidebooks.

This is an enjoyable read, I felt like I was along for the ride in their RV with them!
Having been to Alaska once and being an avid RVer, one of the things on my bucket list is to go to Alaska via RV.
I so enjoyed their laid back easy going lifestyle of traveling. I did have to keep in mind that I am reading this book in 2013 and it was written in 1990 so a lot has changed, pricing wise I am sure.
Alaska is about the scenery and the adventure and it will well be worth every penny I spend when I get to cross this off my bucket list and now even more so after reading this delightful travel journal of these great RVers!
Don't let the fact that this book was written in 1990 discourage you from reading it, I am so glad I took the plunge. There is so much to learn from their adventure.
I found this too much of a list of what they did. Mr. Anderson attempted to include word pictures of the people he met along the way. He missed the goal by not showing the warmth of the characters he met. He was limited by his view of what was in it for him.
The only thing that marred the reading experience on the Kindle were the numerous typos/formatting errors. Seems like publishers don't want to pay anybody to proof-read their books anymore.
