The Extraordinary Autobiography of Jay Hammond, Wilderness Guide and Reluctant Politician|
A former Marine fighter pilot, Jay Hammond heads north to Alaska after World War II. He becomes a trapper, bush pilot, fisherman, guide, wolf hunter, poet, environmentalist, and finally a reluctant politician who endears himself to Alaska's people by telling them the unvarnished and sometimes unwelcome truth about the state of affairs in their oil-boom state. They punish him by electing him governor!
"I don't know when I have laughed so hard or so much."
--The News Tribune, Tacoma, WA
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: The late Jay Hammond was governor of Alaska during construction of the trans-Alaska Pipeline and was architect of Alaska's Permanent Fund.
