For forty years Frank Glaser trekked across wilderness Alaska on Foot, by wolf-dog team, and eventually by airplane. In his career he was a market hunter, trapper, roadhouse owner, professional dog team musher, and a federal predator agent. He was a legend in his own time, respected and admired for his sill as a woodsman and hunter by fellow sourdoughs and by his many Eskimo friends.

Review:

"Nothing that has been written about Alaska captures so intensely the vastness, the loneliness, the natural savagery of this land as Alaska's Wolf Man. It surpasses anything that Ernest Thompson Seton or Jack London ever did and is far more real because it is actual distilled experience that cannot be contrived. This is a classic that will stand tall in the literature of Alaska." --Cliff Cernick, former editor of the Anchorage Daily News and The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, and currently Alaska Editor of the Wester Flyer
