DESCRIPTION:
(from BBC America's press release, October 2013) Alaska is wild, beautiful and brutal. A monstrous landmass of epic proportion, it's barely inhabited by humans, except for the brave and resourceful. It is a world where it is Nature who still reigns. A place rich with wildlife, from the wolves of the interior plains to the orcas of the coastal shelf. But here even the animals must be tough to survive in a place that gives nothing for free. The unique combination of forces that forged the landscape, still dominate it. It has volcanic fire at one end and polar ice at the other. Giant earthquakes and unpredictable volcanoes - the dramatic natural forces that formed a monumental mountain range that dominates the central spine of the state - are still in force today. But as fire has forged the land - it is ice that carves its shape.
