ALASKA ATLAS and GAZETTEER
BOOKS ABOUT ALASKA - DETAIL PAGE TO BUY ALASKAN BOOKS

This is a must have if you live in Alaska, or intend to visit. Years ago I had the entire series of maps in old form. over a hundred rolled up maps, nice to have but a real pain sometimes. This won't replace full scale topographical USGS maps if you are going to the deep bush. But it damn sure is a necessary supplement to the old style maps, handy, and 99% of the time more than you need for normal travel and light bush work. The book is comprised of reduced 1:250,000 scale USGS topo maps set on double 15 x 11 pages in greater detail than most people ever need. 156 pages Softbound.
