Much enjoyed Heimo's book.

I shot trap with Jim, didn't read his book till after he passed. Another missed opportunity.

FYI:

There are a few "Unpredictable Giants" on e-bay. Hard to find book.

It's worth it. I've read it several times and will read it many many more times.

Last of the great Brown Bear Men about Pinnell and Talifson is hard to find but worth the effort.

Not what I found, but as mentioned it may be worth extra $$.

I thoroughly enjoyed More Readings From One Man's Wilderness, and now First Wilderness is on tap. I'm sure I will like it, but is a much shorter read.

I'll check out North to Wolf Country, looks like I may need it soon.

I really enjoy Lynn Schooler and his writing style. He wrote "Walking Home" "Blue Bear" and the "Last Shot". Great books.

Two in the far North by Margaret Murrie is really enjoyable. She was married to Olaus Murrie and accompanied him throughout his life's studies of the Alaska wilderness in the middle of the last century. She was one tough cookie.

go here,
http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/north-to-wolf-country-james-w-brooks/1100003052?ean=9780972494441


but look about an inch below the price of $16.94, it has a place to click for "New and Used from $6.35", the cheapest with shipping should be your huckleberry

It is a great book, one of my "multiple re-reads" on the Alaska shelf

I have one and use it a bit. For histories and similar that have photos and especially maps, I prefer paper as it's easier to flip back and forth for reference.

I spend enough time staring at a screen all day that if I'm going to read a book, I'll read a book.

I understand flipping back and forth, but I just have many many books and I'm out of storage room. I probably need to sell them on Amazon. Might buy a couple more rifles.

I'll read it, but the book by/about Sam Keith is not what I was looking for, kind of like an autobiography, maybe it will get better.
