Der Autor und seine Frau verbrachten drei Sommer in Alaskas grandiosen Landschaften und deren einzigartigen Tierwelt. Besonders Grizzly-Bären hatten die beiden begeistert. Unterwegs auf Bärentrails und mit dem Schlauchboot auf Lachsflüssen und -bächen das Bärenschlemmerparadies erkunden, war Faszination pur. Der Leser des Buches wird mitgenommen in entlegene, menschenleere Gebiete mit ungewöhnlich dichter Bärenpopulation auf der Halbinsel Katmai und der zerklüfteten, unglaublich interessanten Insel Kodiak. Packende Bärenfotos vermitteln unvergessliche Erlebnisse. Entdeckerlaune auch bei den Fahrten mit dem Wohnmobil. Aber nur unterwegs auf den überwiegend guten Teerstraßen lässt sich Alaska nicht wirklich kennenlernen. Gerade Touren abseits der Verkehrsströme waren erlebnisreich. Dabei wurden ausschließlich Reviere beschrieben, die mit üblichen Mietwohnmobilen befahren oder mit dem Wasserflugzeug erreicht werden können. Solche Erlebnisse in Alaskas Einsamkeit und gelegentlicher Wildnis bleiben unauslöschlich in Erinnerung.

Alaska is a state of vast open spaces, rolling tundra hills, wilderness without roads, rain forests, amazing wildlife, spectacular mountains, and more coast than the rest of the United States combined. Southeast Alaska's lush rain forests and Glacier Bay National Park line the Inside Passage that receives many cruise ships each summer at ports of call like Juneau, Sitka and Ketchikan. South central Alaska includes the state's largest city, Anchorage, scenic Prince William Sound and Kenai Fjords National Park near the town of Seward. From Fairbanks, stretches the great Interior where a journey to the south brings you to Denali National Park and Preserve, home to North America's highest mountain and where views of moose, grizzly bear, caribou and wolves delight visitors. To the north, the mighty Yukon River, one of 3,000 rivers in the state, flows 1,400 miles across central Alaska. The vast Arctic coast sustains polar bears, whales, walruses, seals and caribou as well as Inupiat Eskimos, part of Alaska's 120,000 Native peoples whose ancestors have lived in the Great Land from long before when explorer Vitus Bering first spied Alaska's coastline.
