Alaska: Beyond the Cruise Ships
If you laid Alaska across the Lower 48, one corner would be in California, one in North Carolina and one in Minnesota. Yet few visitors to the 49th state ever get beyond the typical cruise-ship itinerary. Writer and scientist Scott Weidensaul, who has been exploring Alaska for more than 30 years, takes us to some of the most remote parts of this immense and wild state, from the isolated Aleutian and Pribilof islands to native villages within sight of Russia, and wilderness rivers on the North Slope – breathtaking landscapes alive with birds and mammals.
