Alaska Rainforest: The Tongass

The first comprehensive portrait of the Tongass National forest. Using sensory descriptions, spectacular photography and factual information, this new natural history documentary conveys the feel of the rainforest, from tidal flats that provide food for thousands of migrating birds through thick, shadowy stands of 500 year old trees that shelter deer and bear to the mountains capped with glaciers. The world’s largest temperate rain forest is a vast, lush environment stretching from the Pacific Northwest through British Columbia and Alaska. At its heart in southeast Alaska, created and sculpted by water, lies America’s largest national forest, the Tongass.
