Fashion Means Your Fur Hat is Dead: A Guide to Good Manners and Social Survival in Alaska (Paperback)
Move over, Emily Post and Miss Manners. Here comes Anchorage Daily News columnist Mike Doogan, Alaska's most outspoken journalist. With tongue in cheek, Doogan has written a code of conduct to help you survive in America's last frontier, where people are more interested in whether you belong to the NRA than the DAR. Learn how to be a proper guest: "Always bring beer, never bring guns . . . if the host begins brandishing a shotgun, it's time to leave." On communing with nature: "When hiking into bear country, always take someone who runs slower than you do."
