Dall Sheep Hunting in Alaska

From the back cover:
"Jack Wilson began guiding hunters in Alaska's Territorial days when the great game herds were still being assessed; then he guided through the heyday and eventual downturn of the trophy sheep hunting in the Wrangell Mountains; all the while operating his air charter business and becoming one of Alaska's premier bush pilots - as recorded in his first book "Glacier Wings and Tales." These stories - including that of the World Record Dall Sheep taken by Harry L. Swank, Jr. - are written with his remarkable background in his honest, classic style. This book relates the history of Alaska's game herds and how progress affected them - from mineral exploration to outlaw guides. A smattering of hunting advice fills out the pages. Written with candor and humor, it is required reading for those wishing to know and understand the rich history of Alaska."

This is an outstanding book, loaded with great hunting and flying stories from a magical era in big game hunting. If you are interested in adventurous hunting in the deep wilderness, you will love this book.
