In this memoir, a sequel to the immensely popular autobiography, TALES OF ALASKA'S BUSH RAT GOVERNOR, former governor Jay Hammond spins more delightful yarns about the fascinating people and humorous situations he has encountered from one end of Alaska to the other, from wild tales about life in the Bush to stories about the hot air-filled legislative halls in Juneau. The late governor was one of Alaska's great storytellers, and he remains one of the state's most beloved and admired public figures--living or dead--thirty years after leaving office.

About the Author
A former Marine fighter from upstate New York, Jay Hammond headed north after service in the Pacifin during World War II. He became a trapper, bush pilot, fisherman, guide, government wolf hunter, poet, environmentalist, and finally a reluctant politician who endeared himself to Alaskans. He gave them what he describes as the unvarnished and sometimes unwelcome truth about public issues. For this, he says, Alaskans punished him by electing him governor twice.
