COPY: A new guide in the critically acclaimed National Geographic Traveler series takes readers to one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the United States: Alaska.

A vast landscape of breathtaking beauty, natural wonder, and rich cultural history, Alaska is as unspoiled as it is unforgettable, and every year more visitors are discovering its unlimited vacation potential. It's the kind of place that's been a National Geographic specialty for over a century, so it is no surprise that this superbly illustrated guidebook, encompassing both natural history and the human presence from ancient native cultures to modern pioneers, is the last word on America's last frontier. The guide covers Southeast Alaska's Inside Passage; Anchorage; the Kenai Peninsula; the Southwest; Prince William Sound and Wrangell-St. Elias National Park; Denali National Park and the interior; and the spectacular Bush.

Beautiful photographs and detailed maps deliver the visual impact that has become National Geographic's hallmark, and the fact-packed Travelwise sections provide all the essentials of getting to and finding your way around Alaska.

COPY: Freedom Riders compares and contrasts the childhoods of John Lewis, growing up in black America, and Jim Zwerg, growing up in white America, in a way that helps young readers understand the segregated experience of our nation's past. It shows how a common interest in justice created the convergent path that enabled these young men to meet as Freedom Riders on a bus journey south.

No other book on the Freedom Riders has used such a personal perspective. These two young men, empowered by their successes in the Nashville student movement, were among those who volunteered to continue the Freedom Rides after violence in Anniston, Alabama, had left the original bus in flames with the riders injured and in retreat. Lewis and Zwerg joined the cause knowing their own fate could be equally harsh, if not worse.

The historic journey they shared as Freedom Riders through the Deep South changed not only their own lives but our nation's history.

AUTHOR BIO(S): Ann Bausum lives in Beloit, WI. Her most recent book for National Geographic, With Courage & Cloth: Winning the Fight for a Woman's Right to Vote, was given the 2005 Jane Addams Award, among many other honors.
