    1. John Nelson says:

      Adolph Murie was the first wildlife biologist hired by the Natural Park Service. He did pioneering research on wildlife in the parks, and clashed with those higher in the bureaucracy over the preference for high-volume "industrial tourism" which the agency exhibited even then.Murie made his first trip to Alaska with his brother, Olaus, who later became President of the Wilderness Society, during the days when dogsled was the only way to travel through the Alaskan interior, and returned for resea [...]

      The author sounds like someone it would be wonderful to meet and spend time with, as Jim King described doing in his book, Attending Alaska's Birds. A Naturalist in Alaska is purely a book of wildlife observations. There were no huge revelations in it, but I hope I learned incrementally, much like one would if they were spending hours and days watching wildlife. The author very modestly says nothing about any physical hardship that he underwent during his work, nothing about how difficult it was [...]

      This is the type of research I enjoy the most and it is a very well written book . Easy to read and understand. The large mammals of Denali are represented in the fine text of Dr. Murie. He does a great job of explaining the many habits and behaviors of the native wildlife in Alaska in the 40's before statehood snd before the Alaskan Frontier became a tourist destination.

    4. Ceridwyn says:

      I liked that the book covered many different animals. Large focus was on bears and wolves. Fun stories told by a scientist. Sometimes the dispassionate scientific voice became tedious to me, but overall I enjoyed learning about the animals and early research in Denali during the 1930's.

    5. Dan says:

      A rare five star rating. It helped that I had just been to Denali and recognized almost everything that Murie wrote about. Even though some the descriptions of the wildlife were excruciatingly detailed, I definitely felt like I was in Alaska again. Purchased at the Denali N.P. book store.

      great read for when you're spending 12 hours a day outside in alaksa!
