Photographer Robert Rumble will offer a pictorial presentation of his travels in Alaska starting at 7 p.m. Nov. 16 at Neighbors Bookstore, 4000 Lake Tahoe Blvd., in Village Center. The program will last approximately 45 minutes.

Rumble spent many years living and working in Alaska. During that time he was fortunate enough to travel the state. As an avid hiking and backpacking enthusiast, he has taken thousands of pictures from all over Alaska, including such historic places as the Chillicoot Trail made popular in the book “The Call of the Wild,” and the 1898 Gold Rush, the Kennicott Mine, Fairbanks, and Nome.

“I am a published photographer with dozens of pictures on an Alaskan Web site, fairbanks.unclewebster.com/tours,” and recently in a book called ‘Endless Journeys,’ due out this winter, probably January,”said Rumble, who arrived in South Lake Tahoe three years ago.

He has spoken with many who would love to see Alaska, but would probably never get the opportunity, so he will be presenting a pictorial presentation on some of his travels there.

“Here is your chance to see some of Alaska through the pictures and eyes of someone who has lived and traveled there. You also may purchase your copy of an Alaska screen saver after the presentation,” Rumble said.
