    Wild Alaska was published forty years ago in this Time Life series, American Wilderness I enjoyed the text and the many photographs.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book s imagery and detailed stories of the Alaskan wilderness I only hope that the Last Frontier is still as raw and as untouched as Brown saw it forty years ago.
