About the Book
What is a tourist's first impression of Alaska? What will he or she see and do during a three week whirlwind tour of the Inland Passage, Denali and the Kenai Peninsula? At First Glance displays a first-time visitor's reaction to Alaska. The book presents in images and words impressions of the mountains, glaciers, fauna, flora, modes of transportation and, most importantly, the people encountered on the journey.
