Wood-Tikchik by Robert Glenn Ketchum

Book Description

"With Wood-Tikchik: Alaska's Largest State Park," Robert Glenn Ketchum continues his exploration of Alaska, now focusing on one of the most significant watersheds in the world. The Wood-Tikchik State Park, a vast wilderness, is home to moose, grizzly bears, eagles, salmon and one of the largest species of rainbow trout in the world. Accessible only by boat, plane, or on foot, these wild lands are nevertheless vulnerable to commercial exploitation. Ketchum's stunning images immerse viewers in the extraordinary detail, color and scale that defines this relatively unknown world of tundra and boreal forests, offering readers the unique experience of understanding the need to preserve this special ecosystem. In his accompanying essay, Bill Sherwonit provides an excellent account of the historical use of the park and makes a compelling case for protecting one of North America's most important watersheds from fragmentation and unnecessary development. "For several decades, Ketchum has followed the trail of Ansel Adams and Eliot Porter, focusing on threatened areas of our planet... The extraordinary details--the flow of colors, the depth, the multitude of textures--awaken the viewer to the fragile foundations of the grandest landscape: the mind."--Bonnie Barret Stretch, "ARTnews"
