Publisher's Summary

True Alaskan personal stories about life on the last frontier, and growing up on a homestead six miles from the nearest dirt road, where hunting and fishing was not only a sport but an absolute necessity.

Anyone believe this??

I doubt a 1/4 of these stories are true. Shooting while in mid air.... 1000 yard heart shot.. then goes on to say he shoots 40 bullets at a caribou at 200 yards and misses every time! Its comical but is isn't even funny.
