Eagles and Sea Otters. Orca and Sea Lions, Oh my!
During the nearly two years I was stationed on Adak, Alaska with the US Navy, I found things to interest my "sometimes sideways sense of Humor." The stories that are included are actually what happened, from my point of view. I was there.
From Eagles that Laugh at people, to the sometimes crazy people that jump into thirty degree (F) water, voluntarily. All on a small, chilly, often depressing rock in the Bering Sea. You get a really up close, sometimes personal, view of Nature in the Aleutian Chain of islands.

About the Author
I live in Pensacola, Fl. with my wife of 46 years, two sons, five grandchildren, 3 dogs, 1 cat and an insane Parrot. Oh, and the sometimes caustic Little Voice in my head that helps the wife keep me straight. Genealogy, Bonsai, Archery, Guns and RC Aircraft are my hobbies. "Conservative Patriot" is my political view as I am a direct descendant of America's History from before 1607. I like Westerns, history, genealogy and non-fiction Military books. As a retired Vietnam Vet, electronics technician, truck driver and Ex-cop. I am the father of two Army Snipers. I write mostly of my travels and the "characters" who are a large part of my life as Non-fiction stories with an often "sideways sense of humor." But will on occasion dabble in Historic Fiction, based on my Ancestors. "Everyone is crazy but me and thee, and I am not too sure about thee." Is the favorite Quote of my Great-grandfather.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I enjoys books that describe on the spot experiences with nature in the wild. This book was written very effectively for enjoyment a part of Alaska that I as a civilian could never visit. I visualized his descriptions of the seals and sea lions like I was there. He is a Very talented writer with a fun sense of humor. I think that his narrative style is perfect. I will be watching to see if he writes more books about his travels during the long service for our country.
