Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
…an inviting mixture of history and memoir, with many an engaging anecdote about Alaska before and immediately after statehood. Tremblay loves Bush Alaska and loved his work, especially flying, for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He brings to life an Alaska that now is only a memory.

                                                                        —Michael Carey, Anchorage Daily News

True Adventures of an Alaska Game Warden

“I was a full-time professional trapper in interior Alaska, a life I had dreamed of as a boy. Trapping for a living was a demanding way of life, and it sometimes became very lonely. It was not exactly the romantic life I had envisioned; nevertheless, it suited me. I loved the wilderness and the independent life, as well as the challenge of wresting a living from the land. I felt I was in control of my life.

This way of life finally came to an end, however, because of forces over which I had no control. In the spring of 1952, a scant three years after I took to the trapline trails, fur prices dropped to an all-time low. As I took my winter’s catch of marten, mink, otter, wolverine, and wolves to sell to fur-buyers in Fairbanks, I became downhearted with the prices I was offered for a hard winter’s work.”
