520    "When Richard Nixon signed the Alaska Native Claims 
       Settlement Act in 1971, eighty million acres were flagged 
       as possible national park land. Field expeditions were 
       tasked with recording what was contained in these vast 
       acres. Under this decree, five men were sent into the 
       sprawling, roadless interior of Alaska, unsure of what 
       they'd encounter and ultimately responsible for the fate 
       of four thousand pristine acres. Life and Times of a Big 
       River follows Peter J. Marchand and his team of biologists
       as they set out to explore the land that would ultimately 
       become the Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve. Their 
       encounters with strange plants, rare insects, and little-
       known mammals bring to life a land once thought to be 
       static and monotonous. And their struggles to navigate and
       adapt to an unforgiving environment capture the rigorous 
       demands of remote field work. Weaving in and out of 
       Marchand's narrative is an account of the natural and 
       cultural history of the area as it relates to the 
       expedition and the region's native peoples. Life and Times
       of a Big River chorincles this riveting, one-of-a-kind 
       journey of uncertainty and discovery from a disparate (and
       at one point desperate) group of biologists"--|cProvided
