This is a special Beaux Arts reprint edition available at a discounted price in limited quantities only.

Alaska is the last, true American frontier. At 591,104 square miles, Alaska is the largest state; more than twice the size of the second largest, Texas. Alaska is a land diverse, in people, wildlife, and terrain unknown elsewhere in the United States. From Mt McKinley, the highest point in North America at 20,320 feet, to the lush rainforests of Glacier Bay that receive more annual rainfall than the Amazon region, to bald eagles, walruses, moose, puffins, whales, wolves, Dall sheep, and the Alaskan brown bear, the majestic splendor of it all has been captured by some of the world's top outdoor photographers in Spectacular Alaska, with 36 pages of foldouts opening to nearly four feet.

Much of Alaska is still covered in wilderness, and here lie the giants of America's national parks: Wrangell-St. Elias, almost six times the size of Yellowstone; Denali National Park is the size of Massachusetts and known as the Serengeti of the North because of its glorious wildlife; Kenai Fjords with its aptly named Paradise Cove, Beautiful Island, Surprise Bay, and Delight Lake; Glacier Bay and its booming "white thunder" as glaciers calve icebergs into the sea; Gates of the Arctic at the top of the world; as well as many other national parks, monuments and preserves. These parks, as well as the cites, villages and regions in between can all be explored in the pages of Spectacular Alaska.
