On Patrol: True Adventures of an Alaska Game Warden (Caribou Classics) (Paperback)
These daring stories shed light on what life was really like in the Last Frontier just before, during, and after Alaska joined the Union.
About the Author
After retiring to Anchorage, Ray Tremblay stayed active in the summer with commercial fishing for halibut and sportfishing for salmon. In winters, he was busy traveling and writing. He and his wife, Elsie, were married for fifty years and had six children and eleven grandchildren. Sadly, Ray passed away in August 2004, one month before the release of ON PATROL.
…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
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.
