When we were young teenage boys, My brother Tom and I went camping on a small wooded island in Alaska. And what happened that night when our imaginations got the best of us is a very funny story.

Have you ever wanted to visit Alaska?

Author Michael R Dougherty first arrived in Alaska when he was only three years old and the Great Land was still only a Territory of the United States.

"Our family loved Alaska and we were fortunate to experience the 49th state like most only dream of. From living in a two-room cabin in the woods, to riding in a dog sled pulled by a team of race dogs and fishing in a lake you could only get to by landing on the water in a float plane" says Mike.

In the Alaska books listed above, you'll get to experience at least a little of what Mike and his family experienced.
