The wilds of southeast Alaska is the setting for wilderness guide Schooler's elegiac chronicle of his friendship with Japanese photographer Michio Hoshino and their search for the elusive glacier bear. Reminiscent of Matthiessen and Lopez, Schooler evokes with quiet grace the wild archipelagoes, glittering fjords and dense rainforests of Alaska's Glacier Coast, stretching 500 miles between Prince William Sound and Ketchikan.

NHA Staff Recommendation:
"The waters of Southeast Alaska offers the setting for a friendship to develop between men drawn together by the incredible opportunities to search for the fabled glacier or blue bear. The descriptions of the humpback whales were also memorable for me, it’s like I was right there!"
