Overview

“Alaska Light,” like Alaska itself, is rich with extremes. From the Arctic Slope to the Inside Passage, from glaciers and grizzlies to sled dogs and caribou dreams, "Alaska Light" paints a mosaic of landscapes and wildlife. Five essays are complemented by 28 story photo captions about Alaska’s geography, wildlife, and people while the back pages are devoted to a timetable of Alaskan history. More than a pretty picture book, it has heart, humor and beauty that honor the best we can do for Alaska, and Alaska for us.

What People are Saying About This

Tom Walker
No one marries words and pictures together better than Kim Heacox. Writing and photography each have a unique ability to capture the essence of a subject, but together, in the hands of a master, the combination is over-powering. Within, Heacox captures the beauty and fragility of natural Alaska, a place where we have our last chance to do things right.
