A magnificent book on the glaciers of America and Alaska. The awesome beauty and majesty of glaciers, the world of ice which has shaped and reshaped large parts of the earth's surfaces, are presented here through more than 100 photographs and a closely integrated, informed text. Austin Post's series of aerial photographs of glaciers along the North Pacific Coast of North America and into the interior ranges of Alaska is supplemented with ground-based photographs from the Himalayas, Switzerland, Chile, and other parts of the world. The authors clearly explain the features illustrated. Their discussion of the effects of glaciers on the landscape, formation and mass balance, flow and fluctuations, moraines, ogives, and surface details is fascinating for the general reader as well as the expert. 

Austin Post, formerly a hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, is a noted aerial photographer. Edward R. LaChapelle is professor emeritus of geophysics and atmospheric sciences at the University of Washington.
