At Work in the Wrangells: A Photographic History 1895-1966 comes to fruition during a year that commemorates both the National Park Service’s Centennial birthday and the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act. Just as these anniversaries provide opportunities to pause and reflect on what has gone on in the past to help inform the future, this publication provides a look back in time at the human activity that has taken place within Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve through a series of evocative and representational images.
