I have always had an interest in Alaska, and one day I plan on going there. After reading this book for the 3rd time, I am trying to decide how to afford to go there sooner! This book would make an excellent movie. It is easy reading, and it pulls you in and you can feel, hear, touch, and smell everything in Alaska that he experienced. He had such an amazing life, it makes me feel small in comparison. The only complaint I had about the book is that it ended. I wish there were 10 more books about him, I'd buy them all and read them once a year for the rest of my life.
