• In Alaska: Quiet Nature, get a collection of serene ambiences from Lake Clark National Park, Alaska. Hear the immense sparseness of glacial valleys and still water. Hear massive halls of wet wood that envelop and transport you to a long-lost time. Hear the tranquil beauty of boreal forests untouched by human hands during days of endless light. Hear lonely moose tromping through beaver ponds and haunting hoots of Northern Saw-whet Owls.
• This library is packed full of tracks with sparse flora and fauna from the lonesome landscapes of the Arctic. Hear the sounds of this stunning natural cathedral while the nearby glaciers remain. The ecosystem won’t sound the same when they’re gone.
