Award-winning author and mapmaker Joe Upton spent twenty years exploring the Northwest coast as a commercial fisherman and journalist, collecting stories, taking photos, making maps, and catching fish. In this book, which has more than 300 color photos and a large illustrated map, Upton has assembled all the information you need for your Alaska cruise. Included is detailed information on excursions, wildlife, walks, ports of call, cruise planning tips, where to look for whales, and much more. This guide is immensely popular because, in addition to being full of information, it also features Joe's wonderful stories. Readers may explore Alaska before their cruise through Joe's videos. The map has links to short videos featuring Alaska stops and Joe's stories that can be found on a companion website, www.alaskacruisehandbook.com.
