You should buy this book. It will make you laugh. It is full of stories you’ll want to read again, and again. You’ll tell your friends about it. Thinking about it will make you smile during boring meetings. People will wonder what you are up to. On a bad day, when you’ve screwed up at work, your wife is mad at you, and the kids are sick, this book will give you half an hour’s respite. It will take you to a place of adventure, danger, and humor, all woven together by one larger than life character. I had to get all that down fast, because it’s important. I’m not a writer, and I don’t know how long I can hold your attention.

Dr. Larry GatesThe stories in this collection are true. In some instances, the names have been changed to protect the innocent and the not so guiltless.

With most days of the past forty-seven years spent in Alaska, the thirty-six stories in this collection are connected primarily with Jake’s guiding activities in the Great Land. These stories were selected for their humorous content.

This selection of tales is trivial, eclectic, and of minimal redeeming value. But there may be some valuable bits of information, if one looks for them. These stories attempt to entertain readers, to give them a giggle, or at least a wry smirk.

Author Tag Line : Alaska?s Favorite Real Life Wilderness Storyteller

After hearing stories of shooting moose in the cabin yard, placer gold and massive runs of salmon, at age five, Jake decided he would live in the far north. Twenty years later he arrived in Alaska - eight and a half years after Statehood and one hundred years after purchase of the Great Land from Russia. The first two years Jake traveled throughout Alaska delivering dental care to remote villages from Southeastern to Arctic Alaska as an Indian Health Service officer. He gained a first hand knowledge of subsistence, commercial and personal use of the abundant wild resources of the far north. Within a month of arriving in Anchorage, Jake was hired as an assistant big game guide and has ever since been actively engaged in hunting and fishing endeavors that ranged from catching earthworms for fish bait to accompanying Eskimos in their frigid pursuit of the bowhead whale and recovering ancient wooly mammoth remains. After five years as an Assistant Guide, Jake received his Registered Guide license in 1972 and Alaska Master Guide license #54 in 1984. Jake continues to guide hunts in the Arctic and transport deer hunters in the Kodiak Archipelago.
