Islander Fred Milkie Jr.’s 2010 book, “Alone Around the Mountain: A Visual Memoir,” is the result of over 10 years of hiking, observing, contemplating and photographing in Mt. Rainier National Park.

The book was a collaboration between Milkie and gifted designer and longtime friend, Teri Nakamura. It has been nominated as “Best Book” by the Pacific NW Booksellers and was awarded silver by the International Association of Printing House Craftsmen.

A sample of the images from the hardcover, cloth-bound book can be seen at milkiestudio.com. The book would make a unique and beautiful gift, Milkie writes. “[It is] one that shares the inspiration and promise of the untouched wilderness, especially for friends and family who may never have the chance to walk the same trails.”

The book can be purchased at www.milkiestudio.com.
