Canada's Yukon is one the world's last great wildernesses, where bears, moose and caribou roam. It's a place where hikers, paddlers, skiers and mushers can travel for days without seeing another human soul, where the northern lights dance green and red across starry skies, and where glaciers tumble, mountain peaks soar, and tundra shrubs scream scarlet as summer turns to fall.Bradt's Yukon is the only guidebook dedicated to this natural and historical wonderland. Offering practical advice on everything from where to pan for gold to how to avoid being eaten by a bear, alongside quirky anecdotes (such as the story behind the 'sourtoe cocktail' - a shot of whisky garnished with a severed human toe), it's the perfect companion for highway drivers, cruise-ship passengers, and outdoors enthusiasts alike.

    The thing about the Yukon is that it's the arse-end of nowhere, not many people live there and not many people go there. So if you DO want to go there, any information you can glean about it is invaluable.I used Polly's book to help plan and then navigate around a 3 week holiday in the Yukon in 2013. It's a slightly quirky book, but then the Yukon is a slightly quirky part of the world. I like Polly's style of writing, and the information in the book was tremendously useful to me, and for the most part completely accurate (things are always going to go out of date, and the Yukon is a part of the world that is changing all the time).I'd heartily recommend this book to anyone thinking about heading out into the Yukon. And if you're not thinking about heading out into the Yukon, then, well, you should be, because it's fantastic.

    Not many Yukon Travel Guides around. This book gives the information that is necessary. Interesting book to read and it is also an unusual travel guide.

    This guide provides good detail clearly based on experience in the Yukon. I will be using this to plan a trip next year. Really helpful. One of the best travel guides I have used recently.
