From author Sherry Preston comes a poetry collection that captures nature at its best, Visions of Wilderness. Released through Xlibris, this book is a vibrant portrayal of the natural world, painted through the written word.
In this collection, Preston shares, through poetry, her deep love and respect for the Alaskan wilderness. Breathtaking scenes such as shifting colors of the rainbow, swirling like an opal; the settling of the night amidst the velvet sky; the dawning of winter; the magic of the aurora borealis; the untamed yet captivating animals; and much more have inspired her to come up with this collection.
Through Visions of Wilderness, the author hopes to give readers a spectacular view of Alaska, and share with her a love for nature that endures over time. She also hopes that the unique spirit of Alaska will live on what she has written.
Visions of Wilderness will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY, on November 2-5, 2010. This book is also enrolled in Xlibris’ Bookstore Returnability Program, which gives booksellers the convenient option of returning excess stocks through Ingram Distribution.

About the Author
Sherry Preston came to Alaska in 1951, on one of the last steamships to travel from Seattle to ports along the coast. She spent twelve years living near a native village and formed a lifelong bond with the people there. They taught her how to hunt, fish, and gather wild vegetables and medicines; she developed a deep love and respect for all the wildlife there. That was strengthened by her first pet, a baby seal that they raised for a year and released once it could live on its own. Many years later, Preston decided to write about the memories and adventures she had, in the hope that she can bring to life the sights and experiences for others, and perhaps pass on the love she has for this land.
