ALASKA CHALLENGE chronicles twenty-five years of flying and commercial fishing in Alaska. It is a true adventure story that embraces the danger and daring of fishermen and pilots as they seek Alaska's... bounty in conditions that are often treacherous and fatal. It documents the deadly trade and the mother lode of King crab on the ocean floor. Boats, airplanes and Mother Nature at her worst come alive in the pages of one man's quest as he pursues Alaska's treasures. Eyewitness accounts of tragedies at sea and in the air are documented by the men and women who were there and survived or were witness to heartbreaking fatalities or incredible rescues. Galeano describes the work and how it's done under harsh conditions. He details how crewmen toil on deck in frigid temperatures raising pots, nets and longlines to reap Alaska's riches. You will feel the bitter cold and the stabs of fear as breakers crash across the deck leaving deadly ice in their wake. ALASKA CHALLENGE is a 93,630 word chronicle with color photos of the fishermen and pilots that challenge the far north country of the 49th state.
