Cornelius Randolf Raven (C.R. for short) is the opinionated but highly informed host of this expedition across Alaska. Join him as he introduces and explains all of the wonders that make Alaska such a remarkable place. Here are thirsty mosquitoes; four species of whales; lush, wet rain forests; glaciers that go for miles; chilly permafrost; and giant vegetables that bask in twenty hours of sunlight per day during the summer. K.E. Lewis's lively illustrations make this book as irresistible and fascinating as the Great Land itself.
