Our Sept. 17 review of "Going to Extremes," a book about Alaska by Joe McGuinniss, was marred by a typographical error changing the word "affection" to "affectation." Our sentence should have read: "With obvious affection, he [ McGuinniss] catalogs the conterpoints of Alaskan life: a young couple whose cabin attracts friends and threatens the wilderness they love, for instance; or the pilgrim who trades a fresh start in Alaska for a suite in a corporate tower." Our apologies to reviewer Howard C. Weaver and to Mr. McGuinniss.
