Overview

One of the first books of its kind to explore the entire ecosystem—wildlife, habitat, and human culture—of the Tongass National Forest

• Protect or exploit? The Tongass is in the center of pending legislation and strong emotions.
• Illustrations by celebrated artist Ray Troll
• Includes Tongass soundscape on CD
• A carbon-neutral publication

Salmon in the Trees tells the story of the Tongass, a 17-million acre temperate rainforest spread along the coast and across thousands of islands in the panhandle of Alaska. With some of the highest densities of grizzly bears, black bears, and bald eagles in the world, the Tongass National Forest is a place that time hasn't quite caught up to—yet. Can the great forest's biological treasures withstand the modern pressures of a globalized world?

For the past two years, wildlife photographer Amy Gulick has documented the grizzlies, wolves, eagles, humpback whales, and wild salmon of the Tongass. Combined with essays from renowned conservationists, scientists, and writers Richard Nelson, Brad Matsen, Dr. Carl Safina, Ray Troll, Rosita Worl, Richard Carstensen, John Schoen, Douglas Chadwick, and John Straley, Gulick's images tell a hopeful story of a rare ecosystem that still contains all of its original components—and where the local people continue to sustainably manage its resources.

AMY GULICK is a photographer and journalist whose work has been featured in Sierra, Audubon, and National Wildlife magazines, as well as in the conservation campaigns of the Alaska Wilderness League, Alaska Rainforest Campaign, and Sierra Club. The North American Nature Photography Association awardedher its Philip Hyde grant for her work in the Tongass. For more information, visit her website at www.amygulick.com.

    Must read

    Very informative about how important it is to keep wildlife wild and as little interruption as possible. Should be in as many libraries as possible.
