Product Overview

With its vast diversity of land, people, and wildlife, Alaska is the last true American frontier. For the armchair traveler, those planning and dreaming of a future vacation, or those savoring a past trip of a lifetime, this spectacular volume brings together the majestic splendor of America''s largest state--591,104 square miles and twice the size of Texas--as captured by some of the world''s top outdoor photographers.
"Spectacular Alaska" celebrates the land--including Mt. McKinley, the highest point in North America at 20,320 feet--the animals--including bald eagles, walruses, moose, whales, wolves, and Alaskan brown bear--and also the people. Much of Alaska is still covered in wilderness, and here lie the giants of America''s national parks: Wrangell-St. Elias, almost six times the size of Yellowstone; Denali National Park, which is the size of Massachusetts and known as the Serengeti of the North because of its glorious wildlife; and many other national parks, monuments, and preserves. These parks, as well as the cities, villages, and regions in between are explored in the two hundred photographs and stunning panoramic gatefolds of "Spectacular Alaska."
