Detailed Product Description
New York, Time-Life Inc., 1972, 1st edition. 184 pp, color photos. Pictorial Hardcover in Near Fine condition.

One of the American Wilderness Series by Time-Life Books. Author Dale Brown made three trips to Alaska in preparation of this book. Brown describes of the geography, geology and climate of Alaska along with chapters on Denali, Glacier Bay and Katmai National Parks.  In Chapter Five the author shares with us his journal entries written during his trek through the vast Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The book concludes with a consideration of the challenges facing the Alaskan wilderness such as pollution and the tapping of natural gas and oil reserves. Bears, Dall sheep, caribou, wolves, and mountain goats are among the many animals featured in both text and photographs. A detailed map accompanies each chapter. The fascinating narrative and numerous photographs make this an excellent book about one of the most majestic places found in the American wilderness.

Large format hardcover; extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail or International Mail.
