2013-07-08 by News, Sports, and Art

Tom Walker is an award-winning writer and photographer who currently lives on the edge of Denali National Park. His newest book, “The Seventymile Kid: The Lost Legacy of Harry Karstens and the First Ascent of Mount McKinley,” joins his canon of more than a dozen books on Alaska wildlife and natural history.

Todd Helgeson is the author of the “Alaska Bouldering Guide,” the first guidebook to bouldering in Alaska. The book, co-written with Kelsey Gray, introduces more than 15 bouldering areas from Juneau to Fairbanks, documenting hundreds of possible problems in detail, using high quality color photographs.

This event was sponsored by the UAA Campus Bookstore. It was recorded for podcast on June 21, 2013.
