The present collection of ‘Alaska: From Colonisation to the Present’ could be considered as a guide for anyone who wants to travel, visit and complete research in Alaska. The tourism phenomena is very well described in the beginning of the book. The ‘Russian Colonization of Alaska’ brings forward the historical details and the explanation of Siberian expeditions with respect to the investigations of Bering Strait during that time. The spatial planning in Alaska and specific information regarding the way in which the authorities are preparing the land is given in an academic way. The details of ‘Transportation in Alaska’, including the dates and all types of transport to reach Alaska, are treated with original photos. The remote sensing and satellite images were used in this book to verify the snow cover and glacier retreat in two parts of Alaska, Kenai Peninsula and Ruth Glacier, while a short review of the Talkeetna Mountains closes this collection. Being a place of hiking, climbing, glacier researches and relaxing within nature, the face of Talkeetna Mountains could be the face of Alaska, where thousands and millions of tourists arrive every year. The 2nd collection book of Alaska may be of interest for all types of visitors but also for academic professionals.
