Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0963986929, Paperback)This is a history of the early days of Alaska's big game hunting as well as the beginning of bush plane use. Jack Wilson began guiding and flying bush planes in the Territorial days when the great game herds were still being assessed. Then he guided throught the heyday and eventual downturn of the trophy sheep hunting in the Wrangell Mountains, all the while operatiing his air charter business and becoming on of Alaska's premier bush pilots. These stories--including that of the World Record Dall sheep taken by Harry L. Swank, Jr.-- are witten with Jack's remarkable background in his honest, classic style. The book relates progress in Alaska, from mineral exploration to outlaw guides, along with a smattering of hunting advice and humor. It is required reading for those wishing to know and understand the rich history of Alaska.
