In Denali explores the grand landscapes, wildlife, plant life, and history of Alaska’s premier national park, as well as the priceless value of wilderness and our relationship to it. Immense Denali National Park and Preserve covers six million acres and is nearly three times the size of Yellowstone. Here stands 20,320-foot Mount McKinley-Denali, The High One-highest mountain in North America. Bear, wolf, and caribou move over the land in ancient patterns, embodying what has been called "the greatest subarctic sanctuary in the world." Following a timetable of Denali’s human history are extensive descriptions of the major mammals, a mammal and bird checklist, and a list of the 101 most commonly seen species of flowering plants.
