Hulsizer finds the real Alaska in many places, from the wild beauty of the ocean to the small coastal villages she visits and, sometimes, even where the tourists go. Glaciers, Bears and Totems is a rich book of adventure travel that is as valuable for its reading fun as for its travel information. (Syndetics)
Hulsizer says in her blog "Glaciers, Bears and Totems is full of the history and natural history of Southeast Alaska. It's also full of stories, stories that were only partially visible when I was in the midst of them." Plus this book features some absolutely wonderful photography!
The twentieth century’s most celebrated adventure photographer, Galen Rowell, spent much of his life roaming the world with his camera, chronicling exotic locales on all seven continents. Yet he always returned to the land where he started out, both as an adventurer and a photographer: California’s Sierra Nevada. Indeed, in the two years before his death in a 2002 plane crash, Rowell became increasingly focused on photographing the “Range of Light,” producing some of the strongest images of his career. Now the best of his lifetime’s work in his “favorite place on earth” is gathered in this magnificent book, reproduced to the highest standards from digital masters of his 35mm frames. (Syndetics)
