Photographs and poetry that capture the essence of the Last Frontier by Jimmy Tohill.
This Alaska book of photography and poetry got its start in 1987 when Jimmy Tohill drove up the Alcan Highway and got his first glimpse of Alaska. This was when he wrote his first poem about the Land of the Midnight Sun called Alaska, Alaska - Home of the Free. Tohill instantly fell in love with not just the grandeur of the land and its wildlife but also with what he calls the Spirit of Alaska. He has been writing poems about and taking photographs of the splendors, hardships and every day life of Alaska ever since. Running rivers as a guide for years throughout the state has given him a unique perspective to work with. This book is a beautifully unique compilation of Jimmy's photographs and poems that will have you feeling the Spirit of Alaska in your heart.
The Spirit of Alaska is an 80 page hard bound book that contains 120 of Tohill's favorite Alaska photographs and 10 of his best and most popular Alaska poems. The book measures 6.5"x 8.5" ~ a perfect size for travel, your coffee table, easy for flipping through and reading and great for gifts.
