Alaska Highways Atlas ITMB Dempster and Dalton this booklet is the same size as all other ITMB atlases and is designed to fit comfortably in a user’s backpack, purse, or car door storage bin. The famous Alaska Highway of WW2 fame has been largely paved and straightened by now, but is still one of the paramount exploration adventures in the world and is far more accessible than the Karakoram or mid-Australia routes.
The original highway, from Dawson Creek in northern British Columbia to close to Fairbanks, Alaska, has been supplemented by several off-shoots: the Dempster Highway leading to Inuvik, in Canada’s Northwest Territories, the Dalton Highway, leading north to the high Arctic at Prudhoe Bay in Alaska, and the Stewart Highway leading south through the Coastal Mountains to Prince Rupert, BC are all closely integrated with the traditional Alaska Highway.
All of these are shown in great detail in this atlas. Road conditions, distances, campgrounds, convenient hiking trails, heights of land, parks, and everything else that we could think of to make this booklet useful has been included. It has also been very attractively priced, which I hope is being noted. This is a light-weight and nicely-presented attempt to move mapping forwards into its bright future as value-added information of use to users and affordably priced.
