Physically seperated from the lower 48 states, its northern latitudes, pastel light, Native Americans, lack of roads, and miles of wilderness give it a unique and magical quality.

The landscape is dominated by mountain ranges, tundra plains, rain forests, glaciers, and an abundance of wildlife - from moose, caribou, and grizzly bears to eagles and snowy owls. Alaska is a land of superlatives. Professional photographer Fred Hirschmann, a long-time resident of Alaska, has captured the essence of this grand state through his cameras lenses.

See Denali, the highest mountain in North America- Anchorage, Alaskas largest city with a population of more than 260 thousand- Mendenhall Glacier- totem poles and ice fishing- dog sledding and subsistence whaling.Author Suzan Nightingales intimate look at Alaska gives a close-up view of life in the 49th state.

Through the eyes of Natives, long-time residents, and newcomers - people who live in the cities, on Alaskas Southeast Coast, in isolated villages, along the waterways, in the Aleutian Islands - Nightingales writing shows the diversity of lifestyles, landscapes, and peoples that make up Alaska.A sensitive combination of Hirschmanns powerful images and Nightingales evocative words portray our largest and most unique state in a way never seen before.

This is Alaska.
