Editorial Reviews

The Boston Transcript
This inspiring book is unsurpassed in the bravery and endurence it silently reveals.
Outside
One of my most treasured books as a boy was Charles Sheldon's The Wilderness of Denali. His book records everything from the cannibalistic habits of shrews to the mating behavior of Dali sheep. Five species of mammals were named in Sheldon's honor, and his crusading work led to the establishment of Mount McKinley National Park in 1917.
— Mark Jenkins
The Sportsman
The whole book radiates the most tremendous feeling for the mere presence of wilderness.

    Incredible

    For those who enjoy reading of true adventure this book is a must. The hardships that Charles Sheldon endured to complete his studies of the wild Alaka are unbelievable. Certainly a must read for those who have an 'outdoors' bent.
