About this book

Take to the air with veteran bush pilot and game warden Ray Tremblay in these lively adventure stories of Alaska s early game-law enforcement. During a career spanning nearly thirty years, Tremblay earned the respect of his fellow pilots and game cops, as well as biologists, trappers, hunters, and fishermen who appreciated his sincere concern for the protection and wise use of the fish and wildlife in the Territory, then State of Alaska.

  1. "Ray can spin a yarn with the best of them [...] and make you believe it because it's all true."

– Jay Hammond, Governor of Alaska 1974 – 1982

"an inviting mixture of history and memoir, with many an engaging anecdote about Alaska before and immediately after statehood. Tremblay loves Bush Alaska and loved his work, especially flying, for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He brings to life an Alaska that now is only a memory."
– Michael Carey, Anchorage Daily News
