Was wondering, are there any books that yall would consider must read for anyone who was entertaining the thought of moving to Alaska? Any suggestion will help along with movies that are not completely "fairy tale", and blown so out of porportion as to distort the truth in such a way that it becomes ridiculous. Just trying to educate myself and my family before we make the move. Don't want ot move up there and try and have to learn everything on the fly! Most things ok, everything unacceptable.

I suggest the movie "Ice Palace." Beautiful scenery and cultural information.

Here 'tis: Ice Palace (1960)

This one is good:

Amazon.com: Duct Shui: Jim Berg, Tim Nyberg: Books

Quote:
In feng shui, wind chimes and bird feeders stimulate the flow of chi (energy) in a yard. In DUCT SHUI, attract birds by duct taping plastic decoys to a birdbath. In feng shui, placing a wind chime in the front area of a home or office will summon people to help you. DUCT SHUI teaches that if you really want help, get some duct tape stuck in your hair and then pull hard-the screams will draw plenty of attention. In feng shui, a wind chime over the stove will cure binge eating. DUCT SHUI says enough with the wind chimes already!-you can cure binge eating by placing duct tape firmly across your mouth. Includes a Da Ktap compass (instead of the Pa Kua compass used by feng shui consultants), its very own mantra (Duct Tape, Duct Tape, Duct Tape, whispered until tranquility or sleep is achieved), and a paean to that essential influence-the couch. Just take a roll, tear off a piece, and hear the energy crackle.
