A New Photo Book Shows America's Last True Wilderness 1 month 2 days ago #54

If you’re a nature-lover in the U.S., you’re probably familiar with the National Park Service and how it protects landscapes. But a new book shows another group of protected wild places in America: the National Wildlife Refuge system.

Ian Shive’s “Refuge: America’s Wildest Places,” which will be published on Tuesday, shows the largest network of public lands and waters in not only the U.S. but the entire world. The stunning coffee table book shows Shive’s photographs of the diverse landscapes, from the freezing Arctic to the humid Pacific islands.

Earther spoke with Shive last week to learn more about the book and what it was like to document some of the most untouched places in the world. This interview has been lightly edited and condensed for clarity.
