"The center piece of this new book is the saga of the Alaska Little Delta hunts beginning in 1957. Three bowhunters took to hunting animals in the Alaksa Range, unknowingly following the bootprints of pioneer bowhunter, Art Young, where, in 1923, he felled a Dall sheep on a glacial moraine in the headwaters of the Wood River, less than 40 miles away. Picture, if you will, a trapper's cabin, brush growing out of the sod roof, caribou on the valley slopes fast-feeding into a rendezvous with the main migration, stopping only to slurp from the nearby mineral spring, moose feeding on the lush willows along the river, an occasional wolverine lopes across the colorful kinnikinnick vine cover-slopes, ptarmigan floating over the valley floor, always under the watchful eye of hawks noting where to get their next meal.

Yes, this is the same place that I invited Fred Bear and cronies to hunt with me in the two following years. . .1958, 1959. Bows on the Little Delta is full of hunting stories in other places in North America. Most occurred before fair chase and trophy hunting when pioneer bowhunters shot "everything that came down the pike." The book takes you to Prince William Sound where in 1959, Fred Bear, Russ Wright, photographer Dick Bolding and I, with guide Ed Bilderback cruise the pristine waters in Ed's fishing boat, the Valiant Maid looking to encounter the brown bear prowling the many beaches, mud flats and creeks for food." . . .Glenn St. Charles
