What investigators found in his plane would come to make many people rich, as long as they had some connection to it. But easy come, easy go.

Summary: Bering sea villagers raid a foreign trawler fleet... a mysterious explosion rocks Juneau... a state ferry fires a bowling ball at a cruise ship... and a beautiful ex-newswoman takes off her clothes to defuse a tense standoff between state and federal troops....

The time is the not-too-distant future. The whole world is watching.

A new President is rewarding environmentalists who put her into the White House. She imposes harsh new federal controls on the northern state, and Alaskans are losing jobs, personal freedoms - even their lives. Their anger at bureaucrats and politicians in Washington, D.C. is growing by the day.

As a rebellion spreads, Governor Jimmy Pender tries to calm the rebels. He recruits Colin Callihan, a disillusioned geologist who has retreated into a boozy haze after the death of his wife in a plane crash. But it is too late for peacemaking. Events quickly spin out of control, and Callihan finds himself leading a secessionist movement he was hired to stop.

While investigating tracks of an all terrain vehicle they discover a poached moose. The poacher lay dead at the scene, killed by a brown bear.

"Poacher's Paradise" gives a glimpse into the duties and perils of the adventurous, dangerous routine of Alaska Wildlife Troopers.

Included in "Poacher's Paradise" is a true account of an early Alaska Fish and Wildlife Officer, Al "Bear Bait" Thompson, written by Al's wife, Joyce Thompson, who was with him during the entire ordeal. It gives details of the attack and mauling as well as the dramatic heroic 17 mile trek to the nearest road for rescue.

Author Jim Rearden

Summary: Here are just some of the fascinating stories about Alaska in the 1900s, collected by Jim Rearden, one of the state's premier writers:

Rex repaid a lifelong debt when a bear attacked his master.

What is it like to have your 60-foot-long boat sink under you in the Bering Sea?

Queenie, a half-wold dog, was the leader of latter-day Mountain Man Frank Glaser's wolf-dog team. Why was she special?

Why was there a rush to buy padlocks and keys in interior Alaska?

Do dogs go to heaven?

Why was a gun mounted on a small plane on Kodiak Island?

How did Fairbanksons heat their homes before the commercial production of the coal in the Interior?

How gold was discovered at Fairbanks by a determined foreign-born prospector.

Learn a secret way of raising potatoes in Alaska from the experience of a sourdough.

756 The Capture of Attu $19.00 The Capture of Attu: A World War II Battle as told be the Men Who Fought There
Compiled by Lt. Robert J. Mitchell with Sewell T.Tynng and Capt. Nelson L. Drummond Jr.

Summary: In 1942 Attu, the westernmost island in the Aleutian chain, was home to two Americans and forty-five Aleut hunters and their families. Located one thousand miles from the Alaska mainland and isolated by year-round damp fogs which manage to survive the constant high winds, Attu was called by an early visitor “the lonesomest spot this side of hell.” In June 1942 Attu and the nearby island of Kiska were invaded by the Japanese in the hopes of accomplishing several goals: forestalling use of the islands by the Americans, hindering U.S.-Soviet cooperation, and establishing bases for attacks on the American mainland. On 11 May 1943, the U.S. effort to retake Attu began. The struggle was essentially an infantry battle. The ever-present fog, rain, and high wind limited the use of air power, and the craggy terrain made mechanized equipment next to useless. The infantry retook the island foot by foot.

Lieutenant Robert J. Mitchell was one American wounded in the battle. During his convalescence he took down the accounts of the survivors while their memories were fresh. He presents them here in their own immediate, direct, and informal language.

757 Alaska's Wolf Man $20.00 Alaska's Wolf Man: The 1915-55 Wilderness Adventures of Frank Glaser
Author Jim Rearden

Between 1915 and 1955 adventure-seeking Frank Glaser, a latter-day Far North Mountain Man, 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 federal predator agent. A naturalist at heart, he learned from personal observation the life secrets of moose, caribou, foxes, wolverines, mountain sheep, grizzly bears, and wolves -- especially wolves.

A crack shot, self-sufficient, and 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 and 60 below zero temperatures, and more than once he plunged through river ice in extreme cold and survived only because of his woods know-how.

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

Author Tom Brennan

Summary: A feast of funny stories, jokes, and outlandish humor
Alaskans must have a good sense of humor to laugh off the rigors of life in the Far North. And laugh they do, finding humor in:

The animal-rights activists who hear about moose droppings and demand to know how far the moose are dropped.

The practical joker in Sitka who sneaks a load of burning tires into a crater of a nearby dormant volcano, alarming the local population.

The newspaper columnist who claims the best protection against bears is to hike with somebody who runs slower than you do.

The wacky deeds and utterances of politicians... blundering bureaucrats... oddball court cases... and April Fool's Day gags both famous and infamous.

Ignoring the conventions of political correctness, author Tom Brennan has collected a hoard of humor that will surprise and delight.

Author Ron Walden

Trapper Ken Whittle spent the morning pre-heating and preparing his Piper Super Cub to fly so he could check his trap-line. The minus 20 degree weather made this a taxing task. Flying to the area of his traps was pleasant, but near the first lake on his route he came upon an airplane nose down in the trees.He landed to discover the pilot dead -- frozen in his seat. In the aircraft were four duffle bags later found to contain marijuana, and a metal briefcase containing a large amount of money and a .45 automatic Colt pistol. Whittle wrestled briefly with his conscience before deciding to keep the money. He surmised that it was drug money and would not be missed, but the drug bosses did notice and sent henchmen to retrieve their money. This opened an investigation by the Alaska State Troopers and the NTSB which found that the pilot had been murdered and eventually uncovered a huge marijuana growing operation and worldwide importation of other drugs. Informants were found; circumstantial evidence gathered; but little real evidence was brought to light to connect their suspect to the crimes. Trooper Sergeant and helicopter pilot, Karen Holmes, and her partner, Craig Stanton, must take time from the investigation to make daring rescues and cope with the mundane daily duties distracting them from the complicated, frustrating case.

Tragedy met two Seattle bankers kayaking in Prince William Sound in Southcentral Alaska. One of the men was killed by falling ice while the other videotaped the even.

Shortly after the changeover a clerk in a bank discovered irregularities in the account. Trooper Reuben Hayes had become acquainted with all parties when the first banker was accidentally killed. His investigation leads him to a personal affair with the Deputy Director of Finance and embroils him in a case of bank fraud.

Many others become entangled in the case: a local drug dealer, a Mexican Mafia Don, and the FBI. An Alaska who-done-it that lasts through the final page.

495 I Will Go With You Into The Dark $14.00 I Will Go With You Into The Dark: Short Stories of the Alaska State Troopers Chaplaincy by Debra Manning Waltman

Into the Dark

I will go with you
into the dark
and lead through
traumatic haze,
tragedy's restless grip
watering your gaze.
And while we look at a mouth
with no breath
and peer at the shell
with no meaning, no reason
(a Hell)
I remain with you
and search for grace
while I watch you kiss
his cold, blue face.

Suicide of a 22-year old
By Alaska State Trooper Chaplain
