Letters from Alaska: The Inside to the Outside presents a unique view of the Last Frontier. The reader is treated to a tour of Alaska with the author, Bill Hauser, as he mixes his first-hand, personal experiences with entertaining bits of Alaskana and vivid word pictures. Travel vicariously with him to all parts of the state as he lives, works, and recreates for nearly three decades. Empathize with his tribulations and join in his elations through his on-the-spot observations while you go bear watching, hunting for Dall sheep, moose and caribou, and fishing for king salmon, halibut, and Dolly Varden. Snowmachine on the Iditarod Trail and go on backpack hikes and camping trips with his family. You will learn about the flora and fauna, the landscapes and waterbodies, and the people and places that are Alaska--the Great Land!
About the Author
Bill Hauser grew up in Wisconsin where he developed a love of nature and all sorts of outdoor activities. This love led to inquiries and a desire to learn, which was sustained throughout his college years, graduate school, and a career in the natural sciences and fisheries. He arrived in Alaska in 1980 to work for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Fisheries Rehabilitation, Enhancement, and Development. Bill had the good fortune to experience Alaska through both his work assignments and personal activities. He writes a column, Fish Talk, about fish biology for the monthly newsletter of the Alaska Fly Fishers. Bill and his wife, Karel, live in Anchorage where they raised their children, Bill and Donna.
