Nature, Travel Documentary hosted by Jeff Corwin and published by Others in 2007 - English narration
Alaska is a land of superlatives: America's highest mountain, its greatest wilderness, its fiercest and most fascinating animals, its loneliest land. It's a state in which a population smaller than New York City spreads out over an area three times in size of Texas. Touring the length and breadth of this spectacular place is noted zoologist and anthropologist Jeff Corwin, America's ultimate tourist in America's ultimate location. Jeff takes viewers along for an armchair ride from the island-flecked coastline of western Alaska in search of whales to the overgrown wilderness of Kodiak Island where grizzly bears catch their dinner. It's a journey you won't want to miss.
