Editorial Reviews

Alaska is a land of superlatives. It's the largest state and home to America's largest national park, Wrangell-St Elias National Park & Preserve where you can experience genuine "Wild Alaska" on its own terms with very few fellow travelers. Nabesna - Northwest Road Access: From Slana to Nabesna this primitive road traverses the headwaters country of the Copper & Tanana drainages. Subsistence Fishing On The Copper River: Famous for it's sockeye salmon, the Copper River offers a terrific cultural experience as Alaskans subsistence fish for salmon with traditional dip nets or fish wheels. Driving The McCarthy Road, an Alaskan adventure! Pushing east across 60 miles of America's most remote landscapes & homesteads, leads to the greatest concentration of North American peaks over 16,000 feet, the biggest glaciers on the continent, and the largest concentration of volcanoes. At the end, a foot bridge across the Kennicott River allows you to hike or take shuttles to the very last intact bush community still inside a National Park, McCarthy and 5 miles beyond, the Kennecott Copper Mill townsite. Kennecott National Historic Landmark: This mine is the reason anything exists at all in this corner of Alaska. Kennecott Copper Mill is the tallest wooden structure in north America where over $200 million dollars worth of copper ore helped put Kennecott on the map. Kennecott's Sister Town Of McCarthy: A perfect way to end a perfect day of exploration in this remote Alaskan village. Extras: McCarthy Museum & Bush Alaska Insights. REVIEW: VIDEO LIBRARIAN - This new entry in Jim and Kelly Watt's visually stunning series highlights America's largest national park... Recommended. Aud: P. (C. Block) 3 of 4 star rating REVIEW: THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW - is a captivating slice of both Alaska's wild lands and its civilization.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like being there in person, Kennecott under-advertised August 20, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I live in Anchorage, Alaska and had some family up for a visit in June. I've always wanted to go on this trip from Anchorage to Valdez, stopping at Kennecott. I rented a 15 passenger van and spent 1 day each at Matanuska Glacier, Macarthy/Kennecott, and Valdez. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and I can't believe it took me 16 years to get around to it.

This video was like reliving the trip all over (minus the Matsu glacier and Valdez). It is really awesome and almost like being there. One thing my parents were wanting was a memento of the trip in video particularly McCarthy and Kennecott where we spent 1.5 days and was the highlight of the trip.

In the title of the video I said that it undersold Kennecott, what I meant was from the cover and description I didn't think they would spend much time at all on that area, I was more than pleasantly surprised as they went into great detail and that was the highlight of the video.

So, in summary, great video for those just wanting to experience the area for the first time or reminisce on past trips, also it would be great for a trip planning video.
