From an Amazon customer:

(Five stars) concise introduction to the “Golden Heart City,” March 9, 2006

I bought this as a primer for my (future) trip to Fairbanks. Some consider this frontier town, and not “Los Anchorage,” to be the “real” Alaska. The authors include interesting historical tidbits, demographics and myths. I’ve donated most of my books to charity, but this one’s a keeper 🙂
