Alexander Eighteen

For 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act, local photographer Larry Johansen has compiled a lifetime of images and observations in a book that tells for the first time, the story of the eighteen wilderness areas in Southeast Alaska.

Eighteen wilderness areas exist in the Alexander Archipelago in Southeast Alaska. This is their story told in images, recollections, and conversations with those who lives have intertwined with wilderness. No one's life has been more connected to these areas than the author who was born in the Alexander Archipelago, was witness to the creation of the eighteen, and maybe the first to have ever visited them all. HARDCOVER WITH 100+ PHOTOGRAPHS $18.00. Also available and written in code especially for the Ipad on I-Tunes with full "flyout" pictures.

XTRATUF:  An ALASKAN Way of LIFE

How do you spot a real live local brave enough to live in the Alaskan rain forest? The first clue is that they are looking you in the eye. The dead give away is they are wearing the ugliest brown boot you ever saw. Young or old, rich or poor, hip or old-school, liberal or conservative, man or woman - all wear the "boot." Why even the Governor of Alaska wore XTRATUF boots to his inaugural ball. But is it really about the boot? You decide! HARDCOVER $19.90
