If Alaska were to elect an ambassador for its wildlife, I'd vote for Tom Walker. This book is his resume; a wonderful tribute to fifty years of patience, knowledge, artistry, and respect--especially respect.--Kim Heacox, author of Jimmy Bluefeather
Among Alaska photographers, writers, and naturalists, Tom Walker is an inspiration to us all. His encyclopedic knowledge, impeccable craftsmanship, unassuming character, and rock-solid integrity are on full display in Wild Shots--a must-read, must-see book for all lovers of Alaska.--Nick Jans, author of A Wolf Called Romeo
Tom Walker has published numerous books, on everything from wildlife to mountaineering history. In his new memoir, he turns the lens on himself for a rich romp through an adventurous life.--Alaska: The Magazine of Life on the Last Frontier
Wild Shots can be said to amount to a work of philosophy, an examination of a life that reveres other life, studies it in often uncomfortable circumstances, and achieves a kind of blissful satisfaction with a realized image.--Nancy Lord "Anchorage Daily News "
Stories to fascinate anyone who loves the outdoors.... These tales and images from years in the backcountry give insight into a living landscape that only a few hardy souls get to experience closely--and serve as a worthy testament to a naturalist's life well lived.--Laurence Marschall "Natural History "
