The Tongass Alaska's Vanishing Rain Forest Hardcover Book

About

The Tongass: Alaska's Vanishing Rain Forest Hardcover, January 1, 1987 by Robert Glenn Ketchum (Author) The renowned landscape photographer addresses conservation issues in Alaska. Covering an area larger than the state of Washington, southwest Alaska is a vast watershed that drains from the summits and uplands of the Alaska and Aleutian mountain ranges, west to Bristol Bay and the Bering Sea. Working with the support of numerous national foundations, Native corporations and villages, and all the state and federal offices that manage these lands, Robert Glenn Ketchum has brought his rich vision of the landscape and his history of pro-active work to bear on behalf of conservation of the freshwater habitat in the Bristol Bay watershed. His vibrant, encompassing photographs reveal a destination with which few of us are familiar, but one that has a stunning beauty and scale. The centennial edition of Audubon named Ketchum one of the one hundred champions of conservation "who shaped the environmental movement of the twentieth century." His prints can be found in most of the major museum collections in the United States, and he is exhibited internationally. This is a beautiful coffee table or library book.
