Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Travel along the corridor of the famous trans-Alaska pipeline and see the dramatic landscapes, wildlife and communities along its 800-mile length.

Book News Annotation:

In this big-format volume (10x13.5"), the landscape of Alaska and the construction of the trans-Alaska pipeline are described with captioned full-page color photos (from various photographers) and essays by an environmental scientist who was once an oil company employee. Gilders describes the geology and natural history of the state, the task of constructing and maintaining the pipeline, and the role of oil companies in Alaska. The governor of Alaska contributed the foreword. Don't look here for words or pictures indicating anything but the pipeline's favorable impact on the people and environment of the state. Lacks references and an index.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

""Crossing Alaska"" whisks readers along the corridor of the trans-Alaska pipeline, displaying dramatic landscapes, wildlife, and communities along its 800-mile length, from the Arctic Ocean to Prince William Sound. 146 color photos. 2 maps.
