For many, Denali is the epitome of the Alaska experience; it is the place mountaineers dream of, visitors want to see, and armchair travelers want to read about.

Spanning centuries of storytelling, Denali: A Literary Anthology considers the Denali region from the perspectives of Native Alaskans, early explorers, prospectors, naturalists, hunters, conservationists, mountaineers, and modern homesteaders. Weaving together the threads of Native tales and myths, explorations, mountaineering, natural history, and outdoor adventure, this rich collection creates a vivid tapestry of Denali past and present. Some of the works represented are well-known classics, others are familiar to Alaskans, and a few will be recognized by only the most avid Denaliphiles; all the stories are the best of their kind within the large body of Denali literature.
