The Final Frontiersman

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

Hundreds of hardy people have tried to carve out a living in the Alaskan bush, but few have succeeded as consistently as Heimo Korth. In The Final Frontiersman, Heimo's cousin James Campbell chronicles Korth's amazing life and adventures, creating a powerful, real-life epic of triumph and tragedy. Campbell spent two years witnessing firsthand the Korth family: Heimo, his wife Edna and their teenage daughters Rhonda and Krin. With impressive detail, the author recounts an everyday existence shaped by a harsh and unforgiving country. In their efforts to preserve the ecology of the land, the Korths lead a nomadic life, waiting patiently for the odd small plane to bring supplies and cultivating hard-earned hunting skills that are all that stand between them and lingering death. By turns inspiring and downright jolting, THE FINAL FRONTIERSMAN reads like a rustic version of the American Dream, in which the physical barriers of a stunning wilderness are no obstacle to forging a life outside of the mainstream.
