This is a true history of the gift of the many adventures I've been able to enjoy in the magnificent state of Alaska. My life in Alaska transitioned from legal exciting and wild exploits to what has still been a life full of adventure, but a life that was at the edge of the law. Alaska is an immense wilderness. It doesn't need federal protection. It needs to be left under state control so that its bountiful resources can be harvested and developed responsibly as the state has always done. Federal interference in the affairs of Alaska, which already has a great state government, has actually had a terribly negative influence on all the people of Alaska.

About the Author:

Neil Eklundhas lived in Alaska for 40 years as a logger, fisherman, trapper, roughneck, guide, miner, construction worker, ivory hunter, and dealer and in many other jobs. Neil is the son of a WW2 hero and his grandparents were legal immigrants from Sweden, Ireland, and Switzerland. He found his boyhood heroes in the works of Jack London, Robert Service, Mark Twain, Papillon, John Steinbeck, Earnest Hemingway, Joseph Conrad, Edgar Rice Bur- roughs, James Mitchner, and other adventure writers. Neil was a wild, recalcitrant outlaw in his youth and when he came to Alaska in 1974 and breathed in the essence of the vast, majes- tic, misty, and mysterious inside passage he fell in love with the Great Land from the very start. He knew he had made a change for the better. Alaska was a wilderness where he found the things that appealed to him most: adventure, freedom, danger, treasure, and elbow room.
