Description

Take to the air with veteran bush pilot and game warden Ray Tremblay in these lively adventure stories of Alaska's early game-law enforcement. During a career spanning nearly thirty years, Tremblay earned the respect of his fellow pilots and game cops, as well as biologists, trappers, hunters, and fishermen who appreciated his sincere concern for the protection and wise use of the fish and wildlife in the Territory, then State of Alaska. Gifted with good humor, common sense, and uncommon storytelling ability, Tremblay offers two dozen remarkable first-person accounts that are worthy of laugh-aloud and read-aloud status--to the guy in the next room.

Review quote

...an inviting mixture of history and memoir, with many an engaging anecdote about Alaska before and immediately after statehood. Tremblay loves Bush Alaska and loved his work, especially flying, for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He brings to life an Alaska that now is only a memory.

--Michael Carey, Anchorage Daily News
