Editorial Reviews

Review

"What an amazing book! You've got it all--immense grandeur to intimate detail. --Meadow Brook, owner, Meadow's Glacier Bay Guest House, Gustavus, Alaska

From the Publisher

This is the only coffee-table style book of photographs available on Glacier Bay National Park. Rather than a travel guide, this book emphasizes beautiful photos and graphic design and is an artistic expression of Glacier Bay country. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Paperback
My family has a summer cabin on the outskirts of Glacier Bay National Park, and I have seen the park from both air and water. The book catches every image of Glacier Bay a human being would ever want to see. Those who view this book and then visit the park might even be disappointed, because the park and landscape is so overwhelming that you often get so caught up in the enormity of the country rather than the small elements that form the picture. Anyways, yes, the pictures are fantastic. But even better are the essays. Sherry Simpson is one of the most over-looked yet talented writers in the modern world. The essays she wrote for this book are truly amazing. For more works by Sherry Simpson, pick up a copy of Alaska magazine sometime, she writes for it, and you MUST read "The Way Winter Comes" which is a collection of Alaska stories that are anything but mundane.

I just bought this beautiful "coffee-table" book in Juneau 2 weeks ago. We had spent almost an entire day cruising Glacier Bay. This is the first collection of pictures I've ever seen that truly does justice to the majesty of the place. I love it so much I'm buying another as a gift. You can tell Mark Kelly lives in and loves this very special part of the world. This guy is gifted!

We just came back from kayaking for a week in Glacier Bay and this boook captures the place and the experience beautifully! A "must have" book if you've been there to relive the experience or just to feel like you've been there without leaving home. A great book!

We went to Glacier Bay in August 2001 and I can truthfully say that Mr. Kelley's photo's captured what we saw. We never got as close to the brown bear and we didn't see a hoary marmot, but, hey, we're not professionals and we were just there for a week. The glacier shots are so perfect; just open your freezer, put on some warm clothes, look at those photos and save yourself a few thousand dollars in air-fare, etc.

This was a present prior to a trip to Alaska. It is beautifully done.. pictures are magnificent.. subject matter is perfect.. written material is well done. I could not praise it more or recommend it more highly. Even if you are not going to Glacier Bay.. it is a wonderful book to own.

Purchased this book to help prepare me for my first trip to Alaska. The photographs are wonderful. I only hope that I see Alaska as beautifully as the photographer has.
