His travels took him from coast to coast, from Mexico to the Arctic Circle, to the far end of the Aleutian Islands and the bottom of the Salish Sea. Living on the edge, and doing some of the most dangerous jobs in the world, nearly cost him his life on many occasions.
The author is the son of Chuck Moore, the subject of this biography. His previous ten books are regional fishing and hiking guides covering areas in Washington, Idaho and Montana. This effort marks a drastic departure from his previous work; a departure made because he felt his father's story was too amazing not to be told.
