"Jonathan Waterman blends historical narrative with tales of his journeys into the Arctic wilderness, creating a tension between past and present, science and politics, reflection and investigation. Since 1983 he has taken eighteen trips to the far North, and spent over two hundred days in and around the embattled refuge. While paddling or trekking cross-country, Waterman encounters howling wolves, British Petroleum workers, Inupiat hunters, and the oil-ravaged Prince William Sound. Where Mountains are Nameless explores how the hunt for oil has choked Alaska's pristine wilderness and also traces the lives of the celebrated Muries, who spearheaded the establishment of the original wildlife range

A most hostile mountain : re-creating the Duke of Abruzzi's historic expedition on Alaska's Mount St. Elias by Jonathan Waterman( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A century ago, Alaska's forbidding Mount St. Elias, the second-highest peak in the United States, was summited for the first time, not by American pioneers, but by a team led by an Italian nobleman, Luigi of Savoy, duke of Abruzzi. Sailing north from Seattle in turbulent waters, the duke and his team disembarked along the Alaskan coast and worked their way on foot across the glistening and breathtaking Malaspina Glacier, hauling thousands of pounds of equipment to the base of the great mountain, which they ultimately surmounted after a grueling and perilous climb. Now acclaimed author Jonathan Waterman adds the ways of the mariner to his considerable mountaineering experience to retrace the duke's historic land-sea expedition
Northern exposures : an adventuring career in stories and images by Jonathan Waterman( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

North of the sixtieth parallel, the sun shines for less than six hours in the winter, and towering mountains are the only skyscrapers. Pristine waters serve caribou, moose, and bears in an unbroken landscape. At any given moment in this spectacular scenery, there's a chance that Jonathan Waterman is present, trekking across the land. A masterful adventurer, Waterman has spent decades exploring the farthest reaches of our beautiful spaces. The essays and photographs collected in Northern Exposures are a product of this passion for exploration and offer an unparalleled view into adventuring in the north and beyond. Picking up after In the Shadow of Denali, his first book of essays, Northern Exposures collects twenty-three stories from Waterman's thirty-year career that show the evolution of the adventurer's career and work, from ducking avalanches near the Gulf of Alaska, to searching for the most pristine tundra on the continent, and from writing haiku on Denali in the depth of winter to decrying oil development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Ninety-six spectacular photographs taken by Waterman during his expeditions lend a broader context and allow readers to fully understand his heartfelt argument for protecting these places. Whether active, aspiring, or just armchair adventurers, readers will be inspired by Waterman's daring spirit
