Alaska's Prince William Sound
A Traveler's Guide
Prince William Sound is one of Alaska's most visually stunning places. Whether you're planning a trip there or remembering one, this fascinating and informative pocket guide will teach you how the Sound was formed and continues to be shaped by icefields, glaciers, and storms. It will introduce you to the rich diversity of plants and animals, on land and in the water, to the history of Native populations and early non-Native explorers, as well as to the recent history, including the 1964 earthquake and the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill.
The book is illustrated with a map and with full-color images by some of Alaska's best nature photographers.
