The Alexander Archipelago just would not be the same without reading John Muir’s Travels in Alaska, which you can find through www.gutenberg.org. Extremely cool photos are featured in that e-book too. For more information about the Alexander Archiplelago, visit the Alexander Archipelago page of www.britannica.com.

The legendary naturalist John Muir journeyed to Alaska for the first time in 1879, and would continue to travel there many more times, recording in writing the wonders of the environment.

Because of these records, we can better understand what Alaska was like about 150 years ago. As you read his books, whether you travel there in person or through his words alone wherever you are, consider how different the environment was then to how it is now.

The Alexander Archipelago is the fourth stop on our Alaska Trail!


See the California and Wisconsin pages to learn more about John Muir.
