Alaska Northwest Books, 1996 - Travel - 119 pages

This traveler's guide to the state parks of Alaska is useful for the traveler and the arm chair traveler.  Alaska's state park system is the nation's largest and grandest, covering almost 120 state park units. In words, color photos and maps, Bill Sherwonit details six of the state's wildest, and most alluring parklands.  

Here are glaciers, unscaled mountains, ancient forests, and high alpine tundra. You will see salmon-rich streams, vast lakes, and remote islands. Wildlife abounds, and beauty is to behold. For all their wildness and unspoiled beauty, these parklands are remarkably easy to reach and in most cases, explore.
