Description
 
Focusing on more than 30,000 years of Alaskan prehistory, this book vividly describes the geology, climate, ancient plant & animal life, & human presence in 4 of Alaska’s nat. parks & preserves -- Denali, Kenai Fjords, Glacier Bay, & Bering Land Bridge. Elias uncovers a time when glaciers shaped the landscape, gouging out valleys, carving cirques & peaks, & leaving moraines that blocked rivers & formed lakes. Using fossils as “witnesses” of past environments, he recreates the bogs & steppe tundra where caribou, moose, saber-toothed cats, & mammoths reigned 35,000 years ago. Geared toward the general reader, this guidebook presents a unique perspective for the modern traveler. Charts, tables, graphs, maps & photos.
