Sunday Creek put me on to Russell Annabel's writings a few months ago. Great adventure stories written from the author's experiences in Alaska before, after, and during WW II. Easy reading, and no product plugging. The chapters on US/Jap fighting in the Aleutians really opened my eyes to a part of my father's war that I knew nothing about. Also, great moose, sheep, and bear hunting. "Alaskan Adventures...The Early Years" by Russell Annabel, Safari Press www.safaripress.com There's nothing phony about this guy.
