Detailed Product Description
New York, Sierra Club, 1986,  1st edition. 160 pp, ills. Quarto. Photos and text on Alaska. The many color photographs are accompanied by McPhee's brilliant text.  DJ, Near Fine. 
 
Text provided by John McPhee from 'Coming Into the Country'. Photographs and text selection by Galen Rowell. 'Alaska has long epitomized the 'last frontier,' both to its residents and to people in the Lower-Forty-eight-and never more so than in recent years, when the fate of its vast wildlands has been the focus of a national debate. But Alaska is more than a symbol; it is a land of many faces, displayed in this book through the visions of a gifted photographer and writer.
 
Galen Rowell, one of the preeminent photographers of the outdoor world, traveled and photographed in Alaska for more than 10 years - not just its magnificent scenery and wildlife, but its human landscape as well. John McPhee has been acknowledged one of this country's finest writers of nonfiction-a craftsman whose books, in the words of one critic, 'have stretched the artistic dimensions of reportage'-and he has received his widest acclailm to date for his superb book about present-day Alaska, 'Coming Into the Country. The text that Rowell has excerpted for this volume represents the full range of concerns that made 'Coming Into the Country' so rewarding.' 146 pages. Profusely illustrated in vividly stunning full-color photography.
