The story behind Last of the Long Hunters:
Last of the Long Hunters is a story about the challenges of flying in the Alaskan Arctic and the dangers involved. In Long Hunters I hope to bring alive my experiences as best as can be put to paper, this so the reader can be right there in the cockpit with me, as well as my grandchildren. We lost a lot of great men in those years, this title reflects what it was like. I also share my struggle with faith, and how that worked out in the end, the reader open to decide for themselves. I included some good images from my collection. I will say the practical mountain flying section will save lives, period. Second volume will focus on the Helicopters, that will be a thriller!
Last of the Long Hunters records the life of a young Alaskan working and flying in Alaska’s Frontier Arctic. You’ll experience the front seat thrills of bush planes and helicopters operating in the most dangerous conditions on earth, flying in minus 600F temperatures and horrific storms airborne among the magnificent mountains, glaciers and rivers only Alaska has to offer. Includes true-life experiences of accidents, rescues, comradeship, humor, heartbreaks and life in Arctic Alaska, gone forever when dismantled into parks and native lands in the 1970’s. www.longhunters.org

At about 25 when Rose was disgusted over some issue in Alaska – letters to the editor. Later in my day job to promote safety issues. Also large technical documents in application for Federal approvals (these fill a 31/2″ three ring binder each). Later more letters to the editor, articles, websites and finally books.
