Alaska adventurers reveal what books they consider worth a read

The year is finished, a time for taking stock. We asked a trio of Alaska outdoors and adventure book aficionados what caught their attention in 2008.

Harlow Robinson, a two-time champion of the Crow Pass Crossing and president of the board of directors of the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame, joked that friends have come to dub his bookshelf "Harlow's Harrowing Tales" for his love of survival and adventure stories.

Robinson spent much of his year reading such classics as "Adrift," "Land of White Death," "Where the Sea Breaks its Back," "Endurance" and "Touching the Void" to name a few.

"I could go on and on," he admits.
