This is the only coffee-table style book of photographs available on Glacier Bay National Park. Rather than a travel guide, this book emphasizes beautiful photos and graphic design and is an artistic expression of Glacier Bay country.From the Author:
My first trip to Glacier Bay was in the summer of 1980. Over the intervening years, I've been fortunate to return often--but never enough. During 1998 and 1999, I spent more than 11 weeks in the park shooting most of the photos in this book.
The more time I spend in the park, the more I realize just how much there is--and how little of it I've really seen. Keeping that in mind, I look forward to a lifetime of my annual explorations and discoveries in the park.
Whether you are on a day cruise or a three-week kayak trip, I hope this book gives you a better appreciation of the park's enormous potential and instills in you a desire to protect that potential for all generations. I want my children's children to revel in the same spirit of adventure and wilderness that I enjoy.
The wildlife photos were all shot with a telephoto lens with a minimum 300mm. The animals were photographed with great care and concern for their welfare, and I always had a companion for added safety.
In respect for the park's restrictions on approaching wildlife, most but not all of the photos were taken in the park or preserve. Some of the other photos were taken in the waters adjacent to the park. Because of the need to protect sensitive wildlife areas, not all photos are clearly identified with a place name.
