Product description...

Papa’s Alaska Stories is about the young author and his adventures as an enforcement patrolman and a stream guard (a fish cop) with the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Post WWII Alaska, still a territory, was already experiencing change and rapid growth. Iwen’s stories center around Alaska’s commercial salmon fishery during the summer of 1953 and 1954. His tales of being lost at sea, living in isolation, and encounters with bears are punctuated with natural history and ecological information. The book closes with an environmental commentary.
