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.

Towering glaciers, endless tundra, caribou and moose foraging through the forests, the seemingly endless Arctic winter nights—these are the images of the frozen North. When Alaska was America’s newest possession and the Yukon was unexplored and considered desolate wasteland, intrepid men and women headed north on voyages of exploration and discovery. They found rivers clogged with spawning salmon, abundant game and wildlife, virgin timberland and fertile valleys. But it was a desolate life, far from the comforts and the conveniences of home. That changed soon enough with the discovery of gold. Gold fever struck fast and hot. They poured in by the thousands, desperately searching for the precious metal. Even after the glow faded, some remained—the true pioneers who would mold a new way of life from the land and the seas. Here is their story. Illustrated with original photographs and paintings, Tales of Alaska and the Yukon captures the spirit of the wild Northwest.
