From the Publisher"What makes this more than just a profile of a fascinating personality is Campbell's deft weaving of Alaskan history into Korth's tale."
— Publishers Weekly
"[One of] the greatest life-or-death tales ever told."
"Campbell makes the case that an increasingly urban America — and its desires for oil, for timber, for neat and packaged wilderness — is killing and, worse, forgetting the frontier we once worshiped."
— The New York Times
"The Final Frontiersman is an icily gripping, intimate profile that stands up well beside Krakauer's classic, and it stands too, as a kind of testament to the rough beauty of improbably wild dreams."
— Men's Journal
"Heimo Korth and his family face down more adventures in a typical week than most of us experience in a lifetime. A terrific first book — by turns inspiring and unnerving and never less than wholly absorbing."
— Bill Bryson, BOMC judge, writing in the Book-of-the-Month Club News
