As caribou encounter the oil pipeline on Alaska’s North Slope and cranes navigate the towering mountains of the Alaska Range, Archives of the Air brings the reader in contact with the fascinating world of the far north. Explorations of history, art, and family round out this wide-ranging collection by one of Alaska’s most celebrated poets.

In 1976, John Morgan moved with his family to Fairbanks, Alaska, where for many years he directed the Creative Writing program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. His poems have appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry, The American Poetry Review, The New Republic, The Paris Review, and many other magazines. In 2009, he served as the first writer-in-residence at Denali National Park. Annie Dillard writes that Morgan's poems "are strong and full of carefully controlled feeling. They are tender and precise evocations of the moral and sensory life of man."
