With this stellar audio production, listeners can journey by ear to south-central Alaska's little known yet spectacular Katmai National Park. Narrator John Pruden moves briskly through the author's vivid descriptions of the park's geology, beginning in 1912 with the largest volcanic eruption of the twentieth century, which occurred in Katmai. The author worked as a park ranger and naturalist in Brooks Falls, located in the park's marshy interior, and the audiobook pivots to his intimate observations of the brown bears there. As the bears converge for the July salmon run, so do tens of thousands of tourists, and the author adroitly addresses their impact on the bears. Pruden's narration shines when conveying the author's passion and respect for Alaska's largest land predators and the ecosystem that supports them.
