A Guide to Good Manners and Social Survival in Alaska
Move over, Emily Post and Miss Manners. Here comes Anchorage Daily News columnist Mike Doogan, Alaska's most outspoken journalist. With tongue in cheek, Doogan has written a code of conduct to help you survive in America's last frontier, where people are more interested in whether you belong to the NRA than the DAR. Learn how to be a proper guest: "Always bring beer, never bring guns . . . if the host begins brandishing a shotgun, it's time to leave." On communing with nature: "When hiking into bear country, always take someone who runs slower than you do."
"Send this very funny book to all your friends."
"Let witty Mike Doogan show you the real Alaska -- an adventure a lot more fun than staring at glaciers through the porthole of a cruise ship."
"Doogan's ratio of hits to the funny bone is high."
--Snow Country magazine
