Photography a Disappointment

        Comments about Alaska:

        Photography in this "Visual tour of America's Great Land" is often blurry and over or under exposed. Colors and contrast are often off. No photo credits are listed in the book, where did the photos come from? Caption for ice bar at Fairbanks ice museum is wrong. That photo was taken at the ice hotel at Chena Hot Springs near Fairbanks. This book is just not up to NG standards and is being returned.

        Hidden Alaska
        Hidden Alaska
        (Based on 1 review)
        Category: Books/Travel and Adventure/Travelogues and Memoirs

        A stunning visual story of a place of wonder and mystique for every American, this book features what is legendary and beloved about Alaska, a land of magnificent wilderness and beauty, virtually untouched by human ambition. It also focuses on the key point of interest in the state today: endangered Bristol Bay, which faces potential mining of the world's greatest deposits of copper and gold. Its pristine waters are the worlds' biggest salmon spawning grounds. If the gold is mined, the ecosystem is destroyed —but the impoverished locals have work for the next half-century. After that, the salmon and the mines are gone. Photographer Michael Melford, paired with noted environmental storyteller David Atcheson, addresses the dilemma by bowling us over with the beauty and importance of the place for all time. Underwritten by the Renewable Resources Coalition.

National Geographic travels back millions of years to see how oil was created, and looks to the future to ask how far we'll go to find every last barrel and at what cost.
