Tom Blackley swears this will help me overcome my fear of wolves.... we shall see!

Post-reading: didn't quite "cure my fear" but I sure do understand them a lot better. This book was full of adventures; well told stories, and lots of interesting Alaskan facts and information on places. Run-ins with grizzlies, breading wolf-dogs for sledding, living on his own for months at at time in a small cabin he would build and living off the land. I am amazed how hardy men can be in the wilderness; especial

Full of useful information about everything Alaska. People, guns, wildlife, weather, hunting, trapping, history...Its all covered in this book from an incredibly objective and humble viewpoint. Its interesting to compare Frank Glaser to the guy from Into The Wild. Essentially they made the same choice, which was to leave the states and tackle Alaska. One was a little more successful than the other.

Best Alaskan Wolf book ever! Frank was one of a kind and lived a life that is often forgotten about these days. Read after you have read One Man's Wilderness and compare the mind sets between Frank and Bill and how different their living in the wild was. Bill followed footsteps into the wild and found peace with the wild. Frank didn't have a plane stopping by with supplies, he truly made paths where there were none. He established roads, built and ran roadhouses, and created trap lines and hunti ...more

For city-dwellers, more than you ever wanted to know about Alaskan wildlife and animal behavior.

But still very interesting.

Miners, market hunters, eskimos; a good portrayal of living the hard-scrabble life in the US's final frontier.

Memoirs delivered in an unpretentious, matter-of-fact style; appropriate for a guy who has been there done that.

Overturns many myths about wolves. Most notably the myth of killing only the "sick & wounded" perpetrated by Disney movies.

A great book that delivers a clear picture of life in Alaska in the early 1900's. It is one thing to travel the frost heaved bumpy Richardson Highway in a vehicle doing 65 miles an hour. It is another thing to walk the 365 miles crossing glacier fed streams, bumping into grizzly bears, and trying to find game for food. This was just another day at the office for Frank. Great hunting and trapping stories.

Alaska's Wolf Man was really an eye-opening and amazing view into the life of a man who lives in the wilderness and relies solely on nature for survival.

I really enjoyed this book, although it took a while for me to get interested. This is the true story of a man who worked as a market hunter, trapper, guide and wolf hunter in Alaska. from the 1920s to the 1950s. What I found most amazing was learning about how he lived and worked in the Alaska wilderness. He often told of crossing rivers when the temperature was 0 degrees and simply stripping off his clothes and drying them out over a fire then continuing on his journey. It takes a special set ...more
