Item description for Rollin' Thru Alaska with Sudoku! by Cheryl Kirk Shannon Cartwright...
Ride through the remote Alaska wilderness (and solve the puzzles) as you read about life living in the wilds of Alaska. This puzzle book is like no other - not only do you get over 200 easy to medium Sudoku puzzles to solve, but you get an up close glimpse of what it's really like to live life in the wilds of Alaska as a modern-day adventurer. No running water. No TV. Just loads and loads of wildlife and tales to tell. Shannon Cartwright, the award-winning best-selling author and illustrator of over 20 children's books, including "ABC Bears", "Sitka Rose" and her latest, "Ol' 556", has been living the dream many dare to follow. Along with her husband and trusty dogs, Shannon lives miles from nowhere in the middle of remote Alaska where there's no phone, no electricity, no roads, but plenty of bears, moose, and even pesky porcupines for neighbors. To get to 'town', they have to hike thru remote wilderness to get to the train tracks where they 'flag down' the next passing Alaska Railroad train, the last railroad to offer flag stop service. In this delightful little puzzle book meant for all ages, from kids to adults, you'll be entertained not just with the easy to medium logic puzzles, but also with the stories of Shannon's daily adventures, living off the land. Each puzzle is accompanied by a story about living in the vast expanse of Alaska. From porcupines eating thru the outhouse, to encounters with bears, you'll get a feel for what it's like to be a current-day Alaskan adventurer. This book is a companion to Shannon's latest book, "The Ol' 556 - Alaska's Mighty Steam Engine," a story for all ages about the little train that could and did come back to save the day.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rollin' Thru Alaska with Sudoku!?
disappointed Aug 24, 2007
while the story line was interesting, it is a book of puzzles. there were no answers to the puzzles in the book and the web site stated to go to does not work.
Very entertaining - more than just a puzzle book Jul 20, 2007
I love doing Sudoku, but I also love learning about Alaska. This is a real Alaska tale told on each page, along with the puzzles that are easy and some hard. You learn about the author's life living in the woods in Alaska on the last flag stop train in the U.S. It is truly an amazing adventure. It's like getting two books in one. I love how she talks about her encounters with bears and moose and porkys.
I had taken the train trip to Denali and had heard her story and it was great to find it in print.
