Alaska Is My Mistress: Alaska's Allure-Beautiful and Dangerous

320 pages7 hours


Jerre Wills was in his late teens when he began feeling something tugging at his shirt-tail, and finally pulling with the force of a 300 pound barn-door halibut heading for deep water on the end of a fishing line. Whatever the powerful pull was, its 5,000 mile beckon, brought the young Wills family to Alaska in March of 1959. First it was the homestead; hunting soon followed; commercial fishing, an improbable occupation became a passion; and becoming a pilot and flying small bush-planes was justified by guiding big game hunters.

Alaska Is My Mistress is the story of Jerre Wills' non-stop Alaska seduction.
