9781594850912: Salmon in the Trees: Life in Alaska's Tongass Rain Forest

The recipient of an Independent Publisher Book Award and two Nautilus Book Awards, Salmon in the Trees tells the story of the Tongass, a 17 million-acre temperate rain forest fringing the coastal panhandle of Alaska and covering thousands of islands in the Alexander Archipelago. With some of the world's highest densities of grizzly bears, black bears, and bald eagles, the Tongass National Forest is a place that time hasn't quite caught up to yet. Here, millions of wild salmon are the crucial link between the forest and the sea, and shape both animal and human lives. But can the great forest's biological treasures withstand the modern pressures of a globalized world? For two years, acclaimed nature photographer Amy Gulick paddled and trekked among the bears, misty islands, and salmon streams to photograph the intricate connections within the Tongass. Together with essays from renowned conservationists, scientists, and writers Richard Nelson, Brad Matsen, Dr. Carl Safina, Ray Troll, Rosita Worl, Richard Carstensen, John Schoen, Douglas Chadwick, and John Straley, Gulick's images tell a hopeful story of this magnificent and rare world treasure.

Book Description Mountaineers Books, United States, 2010. Microfilm. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. * Protect or exploit? The Tongass is in the center of pending legislation and strong emotions. * Illustrations by celebrated artist Ray Troll * Includes Tongass soundscape on CD * A carbon-neutral publication One of the rarest ecosystems on Earth, the Tongass rain forest fringes the coastal panhandle of Alaska and covers thousands of islands in the Alexander Archipelago. It s a place where everything is interconnected: Humpback whales, orcas, and sea lions cruise the forested shorelines. Wild salmon swim upstream into the forest, feeding some of the world s highest densities of grizzlies, black bears, and bald eagles. Native cultures endure with Raven, Eagle, and Salmon. Local communities benefit from the gifts of both the forest and sea. But the global demands of our modern world may threaten this great forest s biological treasures. Salmon in the Trees: Life in Alaska s Tongass Rain Forest fully explores the entire ecosystem of the Tongass National Forest-its habitat, wildlife, and people. Here, millions of wild salmon are the crucial link between the forest and the sea, and shape both animal and human lives. With camera and rain gear in hand, photographer Amy Gulick spent more than two years trekking and paddling among the bears, misty islands, and salmon streams to document the intricate connections within the Tongass. Along the way, she met Alaskans -- bush pilots, fishermen, guides, artists -- who call the Tongass home. Together with engaging and accessible essays from renowned conservationists, scientists, and journalists, as well as salmon-spawned illustrations from artist Ray Troll, Gulick portrays a hopeful story of a magnificent -- and intact -- ecosystem where trees still grow salmon, and salmon still grow trees.
