Having published multiple Alaska photo books for adults, I always thought it would be great to make a photo book for kid's. Certainly children deserve the best of the best, and that means beautiful photography, exquisite verse, and top-notch design. "Once Upon Alaska” includes some of my favorite images taken throughout the years and I hope that my images will be as successful with a children's audience as my prior books have been with grown-ups(less)

A book group for all Alaskans. Because there wasn't one, when obviously there should be. Books are good to have during the long, cold, dark winters.
