"Glacier Bay Old Ice, New Land is a natural history and photographic book that explores one of the earth's last primeval places, a spectacular mountainous landscape penetrated by fjords created by retreating ice, home to wildlife including whales, seals, sea lions, sea otter, moose, mountain goats, brown and black bear, wolverine, bald eagles and puffins. More than a half million visitors come to this UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in Southeast Alaska's northern panhandle, drawn by its unspoiled beauty and natural grandeur. Glacier Bay Old Ice, New Land was first published in 1975, and now revised with a completely updated text supported with more than 250 photographs. William D. Boehm takes the reader from his initial experience as a park ranger in Glacier Bay in 1972, then through 42 years of subsequent exploration and interpretation of this glaciated mountainous ecosystem and its inland sea. Each chapter covers individual topics from geography and geology to plant succession, stream development, marine birds, and marine mammals"--From book cover flyleaf.
