This is an account of 50 years spent in the Alaskan wilderness, in the early days of the state. The author is one of America's last "new frontiersmen", who chronicles his everyday life, trials and discoveries - from death-duels with grizzlies to gold-prospecting.

Hatfield provides a true story of pioneering and adventure. He tells it so well because it is his own. In 1933, he left his home state of Maine, traveled across the United States, and finally settled in the Alaskan wilderness. He remained in Alaska for 40 years. His understanding of the wilderness and its animal residents is evident throughout the tale: "If a man says he knows everything about grizzly bears he's simply dead wrong, for no man does. . . . " This book will appeal to general-audience adventure lovers. A good purchase for any general collection.
