Top ten books about Alaska

Brian Payton's latest novel is The Wind Is Not a River.

One of his top ten books about Alaska, as shared at the Guardian:
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

A bestselling book and critically acclaimed movie, Into the Wild tells the tale of one young man's search for meaning in wilderness that ends in an abandoned bus in Alaska. The book is about so much more than the state itself. It's also about what people bring to Alaska – disaffection, idealism, the search for reinvention and redemption – that ends up being swallowed by one of the wildest places in North America.
