Meet Jon

Jon Nierenberg is the owner of EarthSong Lodge and author of the indispensable Alaska travel book, Backcountry Companion.

Jon is always happy to share his knowledge and experience in the backcountry with guests at the lodge.

This fantastic book profiles many of Denali National Park’s wilderness treasures. It includes extensive information on Denali Park, trails, wildlife, vegetation, terrain, weather and maps of popular areas including: the Savage River Drainage, Teklanika Drainage, Polychrome Glaciers and Toklat River Valleys. Aside from this information, the book contains valuable information about safety in bear country.

EarthSong Lodge sells this book for approximately $8.95. Not only will it help you identify the magnificent scenery around you while you travel in the park, but it makes a handy souvenir to take home with you. Jon will even autograph it for you!

Also, for all those EarthSong guests who have been waiting for the completion of Karin’s new book, Lasting Impressions: An Alaskan Love Story is now available. It is a touching story about how Karin and Jon’s romance began. You can order a copy by contacting us today!
