Author Dale Brown made three trips to Alaska in preparation of this book. The opening chapter describes the geography, geology, and climate of Alaska. Chapter Two features Glacier Bay National Park; plant succession is a major topic of this chapter. In Chapter Three we learn about the geology, botany, and wildlife of Katmai National Park. The ecology of Denali National Park is the subject of Chapter Four. 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. Thus, Wild Alaska focuses on four representative areas of this awe-inspiring state and is one of the most impressive books in this series. The fascinating narrative and numerous photographs make this an excellent book about one of the most majestic places found in the American wilderness.
