Terrific Travel Tomes:  “Spectacular Alaska” and “This Is Munich”    

All kinds of books keep coming down the chute to beguile, amuse, inform and entertain readers. A delightful duo from Universe Publishers is “Alaska” and “This Is Munich.”

“Spectacular Alaska “edited by Dana Levy and Letitia Burns O’Connor ($29.95, 132 pages) with photographs by a bunch of pros is a page turner. The book focuses on Alaska as a place of peril and promise , resource riches and lifestyles. To turn the pages of this book is find oneself among the wonders of a special place.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

“This Is Munich” by M. Sasek ($17.95, 61 pages) is essentially a book for children – children of all ages. Educational, illustrated in a charming manner, the book intelligently covers the high spots and historic aspects of the main city of Bavaria. It is just amazing how many facts and insights are able to be crammed into this appealing tome.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
