Ever wonder why outhouses are marked with a crescent moon or how you survive a visit to an outhouse at 40 below? What do you do when you find yourself sharing an outhouse with a bear?
The answers to questions you might not even know you wanted to ask can be found in Outhouses of Alaska, a whimsical look at this often over-looked aspect of Alaska life.
Combining quirky stories, eccentric characters, and more than 100 photos, Walker takes you on a journey from a glacier in the Alaska Range to the banks of the Yukon River in search of the quintessential Alaska outhouse.
“High time someone enshrined the outhouse in Alaska’s archives!”
--—Jay Hammond, former Governor of Alaska
