Shawn Lyons - A Review of Letters from Alaska

Letters from Alaska conjured up a lot of memories about hiking in some of the places that Bill Hauser hunted and fished. But they also seem important in other ways: with so many adventure sagas from Alaska of people doing extraordinary things—climbing Denali in winter, kayaking the length of the North Slope, raising a family alone in the bush, and mushing the Iditarod—Letters from Alaska tells stories of what ordinary Alaskans do in an extraordinary place where even the simplest trip can become a great adventure.
