It will certainly appeal to the more than one million ecotourists visiting Alaska each year. ...Given its format and content, this book, and others like it in the series, should be very popular with ecotourists and anyone looking for a basic and entertaining description of a particular region's fauna and flora. --CURRENT BOOKS ON GARDENING AND BOTANY (December 2001) "This is the book with all the information you need to find, identify, and learn about Alaska's magnificient animal life. A fine addition to the traveling ecotourists." --INDIANA AUDUBON QUARTERLY (August 2001) "...this volume covers a huge and diverse area selectively, so that there are a handful of whales, dolphins, seals, and sea lions, and a variety of birds of all types. There are no reptiles, but there is a selection of trees, shrubs, and herbs, insects, amphibians, land mammals, and aquatic life from anemones to Giant Pacific Octopus to salt and freshwater fish. Birders headed for Alaska will use it, not for the birds (although there are quite a few) but for the generalist approach to wildlife." --WINGING IT (June 2001)
