About this title


Autobiography. The author, an Alaska businessman, fondly recalls pioneering life in the bush before taxes, OSHA, permits, and licenses. The book tells of a time when the wilderness was user friendly, when Entrepreneuring was a do-it-yourself challenge.

The Odyssey: from the Bible Belt to Alaska; from Washington's Puget Sound to California's Riviera.

The Gospel: from devout seminarian to exile; from Fundamentalist to devout agnostic.

About the Author:

Harold Thornton comes by his autobiography the hard way. He earned it. During his 87 years he has experienced the most dramatic changes of any century in history. Born to two evangelist ministers, he was immersed in the harsh light of God's wrathful love. As a teenage minister during the Depression, he traveled the Bible Belt with the word of God. Sensing failure, he fled to the Alaska wilderness where he learned to fly, both literally and figuratively. In this pioneering society, he met and married the woman who would share his mistakes and successes for the next 60+ years.
