In my opinion, and that of several Alaskans I have spoken with, this is the best book on contemporary Alaska. I have read it twice, and listened to it two more times. It is one of my favorite John McPhee titles. McPhee is arguably one of the most readable essayists in contemporary literature. Each of his books is a treasure, Coming into the Country being one of his finest works.

Excellent. Having been to Alaska a few years ago, this book reflected what I experienced there, although it was written many years before my trip. Characters abound, the landscape is literally out of this world as we know it in the 48 contiguous states, and the US government should treat it as the last frontier that it is, and leave the people who want to and are able to survive there the hell alone.
