Alaska Wilderness: Exploring the Central Brooks Range - Robert Marshall, Rick Bass I learned quite a bit about the geography of the Brooks Range and got a totally unrealistic impression of what is physically possible. The author is unbelievably cavalier about the most amazing physical feats,such as hiking 20-30 miles a day over difficult terrain with heavy loads. His love of the country and what he was doing shines throughout the book. It is really nice to understand the meaning of the term "Gates of the Arctic", not to mention having an idea of the location of major rivers of the area.
