About the Book

Two not-quite-over-the-hill Dall sheep hunters take in one last hunt, flying into the vast and unforgiving Chugach Mountain Range in Southcentral Alaska. Tragedy strikes the pair early on, and one of them is dead. The story that ensues is a wholly convincing account of the other hunter’s epic journey out of the mountains, through countless hardships and hostile land, but at the same time, he traverses a majestically beautiful country called Alaska.

About the Author

Jack Whitman was born and raised in the mountains of central Idaho. In 1981, he migrated north to Alaska, where he worked for 27 years as a biologist and pilot, specializing in large predators and their relationships with their prey. He lived and worked in the Copper River Basin of Southcentral Alaska, the vast Western Interior, and amongst the islands of Southeast. In 1993 and 1994, he took a sabbatical from his duties in Alaska and worked on Siberian Tigers and Amur Leopards in the Russian Far East. In 2008, he and his wife retired from Alaska, and completed their migration path back to the mountains of Idaho, where he is still employed as a wolf biologist. He has authored many technical manuscripts on a variety of wildlife subjects, as well as popular articles in various outlets. He has been a passionate hunter, trapper, and outdoorsman his entire life.
