My family is going up (4 adults and 2 kids) in June. We are staying with my brother in ANC, so we don't need any lodging. Which book might be better? Can they be bought locally in Alaska?

I've had both before.

And each is good. Northern Lights seems more geared to locals, however, with coupons for oil changes, fast food, and much more local interest. I do note, however, that it does have numerous coupons that Toursaver does not have.

You have a large group, and the savings from using the books can be quite significant. My recommendation is that you order of each, and review them. As most of the coupons are buy one get one free type of coupons, you will need three copies of your preferred book. After reviewing one of each, make additional purchases, and upon your departure from AK, leave them all with your brother. He may very well have use for the coupons you do not use.
