Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alaska's world-famous natural beauty and its citizens' unique lifestyles come alive in this exceptional collection of color photographs. An extensive photo search has resulted in an outstanding and genuine portrayal of the Last Frontier, including all the major tourist destinations, such as Denali National Park, the Inside Passage, and Glacier Bay National Park. Plus, this high-quality giftbook captures the spirit of living and working in Alaska, from the busy urban centers of Anchorage and Fairbanks to the bush cabins of solitary gold prospectors and youthful homesteaders, isolated Indian villages, and high-tech but extraordinarily remote military outposts. The heartfelt words of early explorers, conservationists, and numerous writers enhance the visual images.

Synopsis:

Alaska on My Mind celebrates the essence of life in Alaska in its myriad forms. Each page of Alaska on My Mind reveals a different view of Alaska's many faces, from the most majestic mountainscape to the tiniest tundra flower. Alaska's land, creatures, children, and spirit are expressed in exquisite images from Alaskan photographers and in memorable quotations from writers whose voices have so beautifully sung the praises of life on the Last Frontier. In this timeless book so full of Alaska's life, you hold a world of wonder in your hands.

Synopsis:

Through color images and selected quotations, this visual tour celebrates the beauty, the heritage, and the pride of Alaska.
