“Everything is in motion here, even the land itself,” award-winning Alaska author Sherry Simpson says of Glacier Bay. “This is the world on its way to becoming something else.”
Glacier Bay National Park brings alive an area rich in wildlife and adventure. The pages are filled with the whales, eagles and bears of Glacier Bay. The book does more than just show you the scenery of the region; it takes you through a history and cultural lesson on the area. The photos tell the story of the Tlingit Indians, who once inhabited the area’s bays and still consider Glacier Bay their spiritual core.
“Alaska photographer Mark Kelley’s new coffee-table book on Glacier Bay National Park is remarkable not only for its vivid photos of gut-punch wilderness scenery but for the words that accompany the images. Essays by Sherry Simpson, a writing teacher at the University of Alaska, have their own way of blowing a chill breath across the back of your neck.”
Brian J. Cantwell – The Seattle Times
“What an amazing book! You’ve got it all – immense grandeur to intimate detail. Sherry’s text harmonizes beautifully and I love the timeline for a historical perspective. Well Done!”
