The lyrical writing and stunning photographs in this book reveal the drama of the molten lava and flowing ice that sculpted the landscape and the might rivers, the Copper and the Chitina, that set the patterns of life here.
A vast mountain wilderness, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve is a land of fire and ice riddled with veins of copper and gold, enduring the relentless power of mighty rivers that carve and sculpt on their journey to the sea. Life-giving water sets the stage for the drama that unfolds as visitors venture deep within the forests or high among the peaks to explore, looking and listening to the timeless stories whispered on the wind.
Enchanting in its remoteness, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve is the largest jewel in this nation’s treasury of national parks, one of four gems in an international World Heritage Site, truly the crown of the continent.
- A Vast Wildness
- Mountains of Fire and Ice
