Description
Originally published in 1931, these tales and descriptions of the wilderness around Alaska's Mount McKinley (now better known as Denali) were written by outdoorsman and big game hunter William "Billy" Beach—riveting accounts of hunting expeditions for caribou, bear, moose, and mountain sheep, illustrated with black and white photos taken by the author and with color paintings by Carl Rungius.

"Mr. Beach does not proceed far in his narrative before the reader who loves outdoor adventure is following close on his trail, loath to miss a line.... His account charms with its faithful reporting of the details of the travel ordeals in that almost trackless land."—NYTBR
