B&W Photos & maps; 6x9 inches, 352 pgs.

More Information
Between 1915 & 1955 adventure-seeking Frank Glaser, a latter-day Far North Mountain Man, trekked across wilderness Alaska on foot, by wolf-dog team, & eventually, by airplane. In his career he was a market hunter, trapper, roadhouse owner, professional dog team musher, & federal predator agent. A naturalist at heart, he leaned from personal observation the life secrets of moose, caribou, foxes, wolverines, mountain sheep, grizzly bears, & wolves-especially wolves.

A crack shot, self-sufficient, & wilderness wise, Glaser not only survived, but prospered in the far lonely places. Almost always alone, he survived many encounters with charging grizzly bears, some of which he had to shoot to keep from being mauled. He knew how to cope with 50 & 60 below zero temperatures, & more than once he plunged through river ice in extreme cold & survived only because of his woods know-how.

Frank Glasser was a legend in his own time, respected & admired for his skill as a woodsman & hunter by fellow sourdoughs, & by his many Eskimo friends.

WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING
"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 & is far more real because it is actual distilled experience that cannot be contrived. This is a class that will stand tall in the literature of Alaska." --Cliff Cernick, former editor of the Anchorage Daily News & The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, & currently Alaska Editor of the Western Flyer.
