The Alaska Highway
Constructed during World War II as a means to ensure a connection between the contiguous 48 states of the United States and Alaska, the Alaska Highway (also known as the Alaska-Canada Highway or ALCAN) meanders 1,400 miles through the wilderness of northern Canada and Alaska.

For a reader with a sense of adventure or an interest in World War II, this collection of Travel Bits is perfect.
